Which blood test do I need?
This depends entirely on your personal situation. We would advise you have a consultation first and discuss your needs with one of our GPs.
How do I know if I need a blood test?
Again this will be resolved after a proper consultation including a physical examination and you will be fully advised on the costs of the blood tests.
What can a blood test tell my GP about my health?
Routine blood tests offer first-class information about how your body and your organs are functioning, in many senses, they are superior to having a full-body scan which simply takes a picture of your organs and does not tell you how they are functioning on a day-to-day basis.
Do I need to prepare for a blood test?
We recommend fasting overnight for cholesterol and lipid testing but most other blood tests do not require any form of preparation.
