Blood Tests

If you have been asked by one of our clinical team to have a blood test, you should speak to a member of our Reception Team to arrange this.

The Receptionist will be able to advise you of the next available appointment – we hold Open Surgeries for blood tests most mornings and also offer some pre-bookable appointments.

Please be aware that most blood tests need to be carried out in the morning due to courier collection times.

Non-urgent advice: Test Results

If you have been asked to ring the practice to find the results of your investigatory tests please be aware that these are only available after 2:00 p.m, at least five working days after the test was carried out.

Repeat Tests

There may be occasions when you are asked to provide a repeat sample for investigatory tests, this does not mean there is cause for concern. There are various reasons why repeat samples may be required including:

  • Original results inconclusive
  • Original sample too small
  • Original sample labelled incorrectly

A member of our team will be able to advise you of the reason why a repeat has been requested.
