Blood Tests

blood_tests_4A blood test is when a sample of blood is taken for testing in a laboratory. Blood tests have a wide range of uses and are one of the most common types of medical test. For example, a blood test can be used to:

  • assess your general state of health
  • confirm the presence of a bacterial or viral infection
  • see how well certain organs, such as the liver and kidneys, are functioning
A blood test usually involves the phlebotomist taking a blood sample from a blood vessel in your arm. and the usual place for a sample is the inside of the elbow or the back of the hand, where the veins are relatively close to the surface. Blood samples taken at our surgery are only taken from patients that are over 16 years old. Blood samples from children are taken at St Peters Hospital for which the parents will be required to make an appointment directly with the hospital. 

You can find out more about blood tests, their purpose and the way they are performed on the NHS Choices website.
