Blood tests as part of your care

Blood testing is an incredibly powerful tool for screening your general health. You may feel you need further investigation or blood tests in a particular area, and these can easily be arranged following a consultation with one of our experienced clinicians. Common blood tests include:

  • DNA
  • Drug and alcohol
  • Diabetes
  • Anaemia
  • Coronary heart disease

Doctor referrals

Blood tests are often required by doctors to help with diagnosis. If you require blood tests following a consultation, your doctor will explain to you what tests they would suggest and why. They will also advise you on the cost of this before going ahead.

  • Evaluate how well organs are functioning - such as the kidneys, liver, thyroid, and heart
  • Diagnose diseases and conditions - such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, diabetes, anaemia, and coronary heart disease
  • Find out whether you have risk factors for heart disease
  • Check whether medicines you're taking are working
  • Assess how well your blood is clotting

Why do I need a blood test?

A full blood count (FBC) or complete blood count (CBC) is a common blood test to check a person's general health or to screen for conditions such as anaemia, infection, and even cancer of the blood. In a laboratory the number of red cells, white cells and platelets in the blood are assessed. Blood cholesterol levels can also be measured with a simple blood test. You may be asked not to eat for 12 hours before the test (which usually includes when you're asleep) to ensure that all food is completely digested and won't affect the result, although this isn't always necessary.

Another common blood test is the basic metabolic panel to check your heart, kidney, and liver function by looking at your blood glucose, calcium, and electrolyte levels. To check for heart disease risk, you may have a lipoprotein panel that measures levels of fats in your blood, like good cholesterol (HDL), bad cholesterol (LDL), and triglycerides.


Take Blood

One of our specialist nurses will take your blood and send to the laboratory for analysis.


We usually receive the results within a single working day and will email them to you.

Follow-up Consultation

If you need to see a doctor following your results, we can organise a consultation face-to-face, over the telephone or online video.
