Pathology has a team of phlebotomy staff providing a service for the hospital and a number of outreach centres in the local community. These include Skipton General Hospital, Keighley Health Centre and Haworth Medical Practice. The team provides a full phlebotomy service for hospital inpatients each morning, including weekends and bank holidays.
Our phlebotomy team aim to ensure your experience is as efficient and pain free as possible. We understand that people can be nervous when having blood taken and every effort is made to put you at ease. We also understand that no one wants to wait a long time so we aim to be as quick as possible in taking your blood samples. On average, the majority of patients have their blood taken in a matter of minutes. If you have any particular concerns or questions about having your blood taken please let us know at the time and we will endeavour to help.
