Over the past 18 months, GPW-Fed have been working on a new model for a Phlebotomy Service with input from practices and patients. We are delighted to inform you that our proposed model is being supported by the CCG and would like to thank all our GPW-Fed practices and their Patient Group for all your support.
Our model ensures that those practices who have the capacity and wish to provide a phlebotomy service in their practice will now have the access to funding to deliver one. We have also proposed a hub approach with potentially 8 practice sites where practices can send their patients, these are located nearer to their own practices or closer to their home. GPW-Fed will be delivering a Domiciliary service and Paediatric phlebotomy service to all member practices who wish to use this service.
