Blood taking service

If you need your blood taken, you will be contacted by us or your GP and given the choice of driving to our drive through phlebotomy service at City Parkway, Parkway Avenue, Sheffield, S9 4WA or attending our C floor phlebotomy service at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital.

How to use the drive-through blood taking service at City Parkway

We want to ensure social distancing is practised wherever possible and so we have set up a new ‘drive through’ blood  taking service, which is located at City Parkway.

Before you attend please ensure your doctor has placed an order on the system or you have a relevant request form. If you do have it, please bring your hospital number with you and have this ready for the phlebotomist as this will make it easier to find you on the computer system.

Enter directly off Sheffield City Parkway (A57) at the wholesale markets turnoff and follow the signs to site where a steward will meet you at the entrance. You will be met by a specialist team to have your details checked and test requirements identified. Your samples will then be taken from the safety of your vehicle and once finished you can drive away. The results of the tests, once analysed, will be available to our clinicians or your GP.
