Blood Tests

Important changes to Knowsley Phlebotomy Service


To support and maintain the safe and effective delivery of care for our patients and staff, Knowsley Phlebotomy Service (blood tests) is moving from a walk-in service to a telephone appointment system from Monday 29 June.

Patients are being encouraged to use the booking line to make appointments in advance, which is going live from Monday 22 June, and will be open between 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday. 

The new telephone booking line is: 0151 676 5829

Patients will be able to speak over the phone with an experienced member of the team, who will allocate an appointment from 29 June onwards. The phlebotomy service is delivered by North West Boroughs Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.



If you have not already done so, we would recommend signing up for  online prescription ordering. Having a nominated chemist where your prescription will be sent electronically.

 By following this advice it means you do not have to come to Roby Medical Centre to obtain prescriptions and thereby put yourself and other people at risk.

Medical Certificates and Blood test request forms can only be collected between 11am and 11.30am and 5pm till 5.30pm
