Blood test: Assessing your general health

Blood tests are one of the most common types of medical test and are used to check for infections, screen for genetic conditions and to test the performance of your vital organs.

We understand that people can be wary of blood tests, so we want to reassure you that only a small amount of blood is taken and you shouldn’t feel any significant side effects. In fact, blood tests only take a few minutes to complete. Typically, we will take the sample from a vessel in your arm, such as inside your elbow or wrist, where the veins are close to the surface and can be easily uncovered.

If you would like to book a blood test appointment with us, please ask your doctor for a referral.
