Drive-through blood sample (phlebotomy) service

We operate a drive through blood sample service at our Aintree University Hospital site. The drive through is located at the Lower Lane entrance to the hospital site, not far from Woodlands Hospice.

Using our drive through service keeps you as safe as possible, and avoids you needing to attend a hospital to have your blood taken.

This page gives you all the information you need to use the service, and lets you book your appointment online. Patients who cannot book online should call 0151 529 4559.


Please remember to bring your blood form with you – see below for more information.


How to book an appointment

Please click the following link ( – the website shows slots, which are offered from 8.30am-4pm, for the next two months.

When you select a slot, you will be asked to provide your:

  • Name

  • Mobile phone number and

Where are we based?

What do I need to bring with me?

  • Your blood form was included with the patient letter about your appointment – please bring this with you, as we cannot take your blood without this form, and you will have to get another appointment.
  • A face mask/covering (although we can provide one for you on arrival).


Can I drive myself?

You can either drive yourself, or have someone else drive you.

What do I do when I get to the site?

Stewards will guide you at the site and show you where to park.

How will my blood be taken?

You will be asked to lower your window and put your arm out for our phlebotomists to take your blood. For infection prevention reasons, you should not open your car door, or get out of your car, unless a member of staff instructs you to do so.

What if I feel unwell?

If you feel unwell at any point then simply let our staff know. There are designated areas to park if you need some time to recover.

What if I have other questions?

If you have any other questions then please ask a member of the nursing staff or security on site and they will be happy to help.
