Who We Are
In 2009 Jayne set up Phlebotomy Services Ltd to provide private blood services for people in their homes after requests from her needle-phobic patients at the surgery. Since then, the business has grown, built a reputation UK wide due to the continued care & personal service, experienced team & always going that extra mile.
Our extensive client base spans from everyday individuals to large multinational corporations, from well known prominent figures to contracts with the MOD & The Anthony Nolan Trust. Regardless of their status, every client and patient is provided with the same level of care and respect that they rightfully deserve.
Founder Jayne Atkins has been a phlebotomist for over 22 years, with vast clinical experience in private and NHS hospitals, many GP surgeries, and working in the community for both NHS and private appointments. Her experienced handpicked specialist team work closely with her delivering a first-class professional service across the UK.
Phlebotomy Services has built strong partnerships with nationally recognised, CQC & UKAS-approved testing laboratories. As a result, we now offer clients the option of private blood tests who wish to undergo testing independently, without the need for a GP referral. (Please be advised, we offer no medical advice in this capacity).
We took great pride in recently achieving CQC Registration. After months of diligent efforts, we are proud to have achieved and met the rigorous standards set by the CQC. We believe that we are among the pioneers in the private phlebotomy industry to achieve this registration, making it a significant milestone for our organisation.
