Have you been requested to have a blood test?
We know that over recent months it has been difficult at times to access blood tests locally, One Ellesmere Port Primary Care Network is a collaboration of the six local GP Practices across the town who are working together with the common goal of creating a better future for their patients. As a part of achieving this goal, the Network has worked together with colleagues from the Countess of Chester NHS Foundation Trust to introduce a new Phlebotomy (or blood test) service for Ellesmere Port.
You will be able to access a dedicated blood test clinic located at Stanney Lane Clinic in Ellesmere Port (Stanney Lane, CH65 9AE) or the 1829 Building, Liverpool Road, Chester and it is available to patients from across the six practices in Ellesmere Port.
Request My Blood Form
Extended Hours at the Ellesmere Port Hospital will still be offering a phlebotomy service during evenings and at the weekend, to book an appointment please ring 0300 123 7743.
Important – You will need to have a printed blood form if you have an appointment with Extended Hours Service, please request using form above
Please note that the new Phlebotomy Service currently does not have a telephone number. The telephone number for the dressing service previously located at Stanney Lane Clinic has moved with that service to their new location, therefore you will not be able to access the new Phlebotomy Service via this number.
1) I’m not able to get online and I don’t have an email address, how can I do this?
Your GP receptionist will be able to book your appointment for you if you’re unable to get online. If you are able to get online and don’t have your own email address you can use firstname.lastname@example.org to book your test.
2) I don’t know where Stanney Lane is.
The full address is Stanney Lane Clinic, Ellesmere Port, CH65 9AE. There is free car parking on site and across the road in Whitby Park. The clinic where you will have your bloods taken is on the ground floor.
3) How will I know where to go when I get to the clinic?
There will be plenty of signs at the clinic showing you where to go to wait to see a phlebotomist to get your bloods taken. When you arrive at the clinic you’ll be asked to wait in a chair that has been dedicated for your GP Practice, look for the signs for your GP Practice chair and wait for your name to be called.
4) I always take a blood form from my GP when I have my blood taken, will I need to visit the practice first to collect this?
No – this new process means you don’t need to bring any additional paperwork. Just arrive at the clinic at your appointment time and give your name, date of birth and first line of your address to the phlebotomist who will take your blood. Remember your GP practice do need to add a blood form to your notes (use the form below to request)
5) Do I need to follow any additional guidelines or measures?
