If the Doctor feels that a blood test is required, he will complete an appointment booking slip and ask you to hand it into Reception and make an appointment with the Heath Care Assistant to have these tests carried out. Most tests can be undertaken routinely within 14 days. If they are more urgent the doctor will indicate this on the slip. Multiple tests can be taken with one needle insertion.
Please note that for fasting blood tests patients should drink only water for 12 hours before the test, it is however fine to take your routine medication.
