Blood Tests

blood_tests_4A blood test is when a sample of blood is taken for testing in a laboratory. Blood tests have a wide range of uses and are one of the most common types of medical test. For example, a blood test can be used to:

  • Assess your general state of health
  • Confirm the presence of a bacterial or viral infection
  • See how well certain organs, such as the liver and kidneys, are functioning
A blood test usually involves the phlebotomist taking a blood sample from a blood vessel in your arm and the usual place for a sample is the inside of the elbow or wrist, where the veins are relatively close to the surface. Blood samples from children are most commonly taken from the back of the hand. The child's hand will be anaesthetised (numbed) with a special cream before the sample is taken.
 
You can find out more about blood tests, their purpose and the way they are performed on the NHS Choices website.
BLOOD TEST 'SIT AND WAIT' APPOINTMENTS

Did you know appointments are available for blood tests without the need to book in advance?

Simply turn up at the surgery (Monday to Friday) between 08.00am - 11.30am and your blood test will be taken that morning in our 'Sit and Wait' Clinic.

(Please note: Your blood test MUST have been authorised by the doctor)

Whilst we endeavour to avoid delays these may on occasions be unavoidable but we will advise you of the current waiting time on arrival.
