Phlebotomy service & Covid-19
Posted on 16 Mar 2020
We have received the following instruction from Southern Hampshire Primary Care Alliance, who provide the phlebotomy service at Brune Medical Centre and Forton Medical Centre:
"Please continue to advise phlebotomy patients that if they have a cough or a fever to NOT attend the GP surgery for their phlebotomy appointment.
The phlebotomists will continue to take blood for patients with the following conditions:
• On Warfarin
• Have a long term condition
• Need to have bloods done urgently (as in “on the day” only)
Routine bloods will be suspended until further notice".
