From a simple “Full Blood Count” to a comprehensive set of tests for “Allergies” or “Fertility”, we carry out numerous blood tests every week for patients.
If you know which test(s) you require then you can simply contact us with the details and we will book you in for the blood test(s), without the need to see a GP first. However, if you are unsure which tests you require, then we advise you have a 20-minute or more GP consultation beforehand. Please see the two blood testing options below. For children under 14, we have access to a paediatric phlebotomy service. Please contact us for more information.
This is for people who already know which blood test(s) they want to have. You can simply provide the name of the test(s) and we can tell you how much the laboratory charge and then book you in. There is no doctor’s consultation with this option, and you do not need to be a registered patient or have seen one of our doctors beforehand.
A doctor will not be involved in the process, so we will not be able to advise you what time the test should be taken or whether you should fast first.
In addition to the £40 fee for taking the blood, each blood test is priced individually depending on the laboratory cost for analysis. When the results are sent to us, we directly email them to you. A doctor will not see the results or be able to comment on them. The test result document will show you the exact figure per test and where it falls within the normal limits/parameters.
If you would like a doctor’s advice on any aspect of the blood test, either before or after, then you can book a 20-minute GP consultation with us (face to face or by phone).
We use a private laboratory in London to carry out all of our blood testing. All the samples we collect are couriered directly to the laboratory every evening. Most results are available the next day, but some tests have a longer analysis time.
If you are having tests carried out by a different provider, then you can bring your blood test kit to our clinic for just the phlebotomy service. You will then take your completed blood kit with you.
Please ensure that you open your blood kit before you book an appointment as normally there are special instructions to follow for the tests. Some blood test kits require you to bring a frozen block for the return postage and some tests can only be carried out in the morning or on certain days of the week.
You will be responsible for sending the blood kit off to its destination and they will provide you with the results. However, if you require any advice regarding the results, we can arrange an appointment with a GP. A 20-minute GP appointment is priced at £93.
If you live in or near the towns of Poole or Christchurch , then our Bournemouth clinic is the perfect location for you to have your blood tests. If you live closer to Weymouth or Bridport then why not try our Poundbury clinic located in Dorchester.
