Blood Tests

We have a Phlebotomist here each weekday morning from 8.30am – 12.30pm.

You will need to book an appointment for the Phlebotomy Clinic. To arrange an appointment call the surgery on 01865 429993 and speak to one of the receptionists, or you can book appointments online via Patient Access.

If you have been asked to come in for a fasting blood test, please ensure you have had nothing to eat or drink, apart from water, from midnight the night before your blood test.  Most medication should be taken as usual with water, unless the instructions state to ‘take with or after food’.  If this is the case then please contact your GP for advice.

Please allow at least five working days for the results of blood tests to get back to us. We ask patients to phone in for their results, preferably after 2pm.

If there is an abnormal result we will get in touch with you to inform you and to start any necessary treatment.  It is therefore important to make sure we have your up to date contact details: please contact us to inform us of any changes.
