Secondary Care Blood Tests

Guide for Secondary Care Blood Tests

If you have had a request from a Clinician who works in Secondary Care for a blood test, in most cases you will need to arrange to have these bloods done through the Secondary Care Bloods Service. Secondary Care includes Hospital Clinicians, Consultants, Specialists etc. This can be done by phoning 01539 715700. The service has various sites available for you to book including Westmorland General Hospital.

There are some exceptions to this:

High Risk Blood Monitoring. If we prescribe your high risk medication, it is our responsibility to monitor your bloods.

The request has come from outside Morecambe Bay NHS Trust. The Secondary Care Bloods Service haven’t the ability to forward results onto the requesting clinician from outside Morecambe Bay NHS Trust. This means we will continue to do any blood monitoring here and forward the results back to the requesting clinician. However, if the requests are from a specialist out of area and are in relation to oncology then you would usually have a local consultant who can make any requests for bloods and will then receive the results directly, meaning you should book through the Secondary Care Bloods Service.

Substance Misuse Bloods, these may be requested by a service out of Morecambe Bay NHS Trust.

Scans Some contrast scans require Renal Bloods to be taken in advance, these can be done at Station House Surgery.

If any of these exception apply to you then please mention this to our Reception Team and they will book you an appropriate appointment.
