Blood Tests

blood_tests_4Once a doctor has filled in a blood test form you will need to make an appointment at the reception desk (or by phone) to have the blood taken. Most times your blood will be taken by a phlebotomist (someone who specialises in taking blood samples). The phlebotomists work on the same floor as our surgery.

The results of most blood tests come back to us within a few days.

You can find out more about blood tests, their purpose and the way they are performed on the NHS Choices website.
