Phlebotomists

Kahina Khemmou
Phlebotomists take blood samples from patients. The samples are then examined in a laboratory and the results can be used to diagnose disease and conditions.
The Old Church Surgery has it's own in-house phlebotomist. Appointments can be booked at the request of a practice clinician. Please speak to a member of our reception team for further information.
Alternatively, patients can attend the Waltham Forest Community Phlebotomy service. Details of this service can be found at https://www.nelft.nhs.uk/wf-blood-test
