We use a private laboratory in London to carry out all of our blood testing. There are hundreds of blood tests available and all the samples we collect are couriered directly to the laboratory every evening.
There are 2 Blood Testing options available:
Option 1: Nurse Blood Test – £35 – (plus the laboratory cost of the individual blood tests)
This is just a phlebotomy service (a blood draw). This is for people who already know which blood test(s) they want to have and do not need a doctor’s consultation beforehand. You do not need to be a registered patient or have seen one of our doctors before.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION – Please read this before you proceed with a Nurse Blood Test appointment.
This type of blood test is booked in directly with a nurse by our administration team. A doctor will not be involved in the process and will not see the tests that have been requested. Therefore, our admin team will not be able to give any additional information regarding the time of day the tests should be carried out and whether they are fasting tests etc. It is your responsibility to instruct us on those details. If you would like any doctor’s advice before the test(s), please contact us and we will book you in for a GP consultation (please note, there would be a charge for this appointment).
A phlebotomy fee of £35 is included in the total cost of your blood test appointment. The blood tests are priced individually depending on the laboratory cost for analysis. When the results are sent to us, we directly email them to you. Please note that a doctor will not see the results and therefore will not analyse them or make any comments. The test result(s) document is sent with the laboratories standard interpretation of each test on there. It will tell you the exact figure(s) per test and where it falls within the normal limits/parameters.
If you would like to discuss your results with one of our doctors, we can book you in for a consultation. If you are a new patient, then it will be your choice of a 20-minute telephone or face to face appointment and is charged for at the usual rate.
Option 2: GP Requested Blood Test – £35 – (plus the laboratory cost of the individual blood tests)
This type of blood test will be requested by one of our doctors after you have seen them for a consultation or you are a regular patient and need certain things monitored. Sometimes, if you receive repeat prescriptions from us, the doctor may ask for a periodic blood test.
You will be booked in for a blood test with a nurse and the phlebotomy fee of £35 is included in the total cost of your blood test appointment. The blood tests are priced individually depending on the laboratory cost for analysis.
The laboratory will send your results directly to us. They will be shown to the doctor you saw (or regularly see), unless an urgent result needs more rapid action. When the doctor looks at your results, they will either provide comments which are emailed to you along with your results, or, if they deem necessary, we will arrange a free 10 minute telephone call for the doctor to speak to you.
If you would like a longer appointment with the doctor to discuss your results, you can contact us to arrange a 20-minute telephone or face to face consultation. (Please note that this is charged for at the usual price).
