GP blood tests available in Whitegate Health Centre

Due to limited resources, the practices capacity for routine GP blood test has decreased and waiting times have increased.

To help with demand, the Anticoagulation Service from Blackpool Teaching Hospitals is providing a Community Phlebotomy Service in the Whitegate Health Centre on the ground floor.

This will allow patients who require a blood test to have a booked appointment in Whitegate Health Centre, often at a reduced waiting time compared to having an appointment within the practice.

This service runs Monday to Friday, from 9:30am to 12:00, and again at 1:00pm to 4:00pm.

When the practice is closed, you can also call the Enhanced Access service directly to book or manage your appointment on 01253 952950.
