Phlebotomy is the process of taking blood from a patient to be sent to the hospital for analysis.
Blood tests are used to help obtain a diagnosis for illness – or rule them out, monitor treatment, and help patients, alongside their GPs, to manage long term health conditions.
The majority of blood tests only take a few minutes and are carried out by a phlebotomist (a specialist in taking blood samples from patients)
