From 1 Feb BHRUT no longer be providing a phlebotomy service for patients referred in on suspected cancer.


As of 1 February BHRUT will no longer be providing a phlebotomy service for patients referred in on suspected cancer.  This will speed up patients’ pathways and help the Trust to deliver on the 28 day FDS standard for patients.  As of the beginning of this week patients could have a blood test within one day across BHR and so we ask GPs to ensure they use community phlebotomy.
