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.

Our bloods are collected at 12.00 each day so to ensure reliable results your blood sample must be taken in the morning.  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

The only blood test that you will need to fast for are Glucose and Cholesterol tests, others are unaffected by fasting.

If you think you have a kidney infection please remember to bring a urine sample or ask for a sample bottle on arrival at reception.
