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

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.

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.
