ESNEFT Phlebotomy Service


Blood tests have a wide range of uses and are one of the most common types of clinical test.

Taking the blood sample is also called phlebotomy – you might find this term used in some of our services.


A blood test can be used to:

  • assess your general state of health
  • check if you have an infection
  • see how well certain organs, such as the liver and kidneys, are working
  • screen for certain genetic conditions


For more information about blood tests, please visit the NHS Choices website.


All blood tests should be performed alongside the correct processes. Please see below the ESNEFT Phlebotomy Order of Draw and Blood collection system as set out by our provider Starstedt:
