Our phlebotomists take blood and ensure its transportation to the local laboratories. Blood test appointments are available between 8.10am and 1pm Monday to Friday, and can be made via reception. A doctor or the hospital must authorise all tests before they can be taken.
Please note that blood results are normally returned to us within 3-5 days. Your doctor will give you details of how to obtain your results, but the usual protocol is that they will contact you if anything is abnormal. They may request for you to book a follow up appointment, which can be done online (via Patient Access), at reception or on the phone.
Results can also be accessed online, if you have signed up for Patient Access and selected to be able to view results.
Receptionists generally do not give out results.
