Things to know about your test

Request form:

This is given to you when you see your GP or at an outpatient appointment at the hospital. It is essential that you bring this form with you to have your blood test.  If you not given a blood request form, your GP/Consultant may have requested your bloods electronically which we will have received on our IC/Unite system, please consult with your GP/Consultant this has been done prior to booking your blood test appointment

 Fasting and timed tests:

Some tests need to be taken at a special time of day (for example, certain drug tests), or when you are fasting. You should be advised of this when the blood request form is given to you. For fasting glucose and triglyceride tests you should have fasted for 10 hours no food or drink other than plain water.

If your child requires EMLA Cream please see your GP for a prescription and apply the cream one hour before their blood test appointment. Alternatively you can visit your local pharmacy where you can buy EMLA cream over the counter. Please be aware we do not supply or apply the EMLA cream in any of our clinics.


Test results are sent back to your doctor. Most tests are available within a working day and most come back electronically. Some tests can take longer, especially if they have to be sent to another laboratory. Your GP or doctor at the hospital can advise you on this.


Please be aware that in the instance that you are late for your blood test appointment you will need to rebook another appointment.
