Arrange a blood test

Arranging a blood test

If your doctor has asked you to have a blood test, you will need to book an appointment with the phlebotomist who is at the Surgery every morning from Monday to Friday. Please bring your blood request form if you have one. Appointments for blood tests may be booked up to 6 weeks ahead.

Alternatively, you can take your blood form to the Pathology Department at the James Paget Hospital during working hours and they will perform the blood test for you.

Results

Please contact the surgery 5 days after your test to enquire about your result (occasionally some tests may take longer than 5 days, but your GP should advise you if this is the case). We do not routinely contact patients with results.

Please contact us in the afternoon or evening for results as they arrive with us after lunch. The doctor needs to read and interpret each result first. The receptionist will be able to tell you if any further action is required but is not qualified to discuss the result with you. Should this be necessary, please make an appointment to come in and see your doctor. Alternatively you may book an appointment for the doctor to ring you.

For confidentiality reasons we are only able to give test results to the patient concerned, unless other arrangements have been made with your GP.
