The practice nurse or healthcare assistant usually takes blood tests. If a clinician has recommended that a blood test is required, please let the receptionist know so that an appropriate appointment can be booked.

If you need to see the doctor regarding the test result, it is best to make a follow up appointment about 7 days later by which time most tests are back.

In this surgery our nurses will carry out INR levels for patients on warfarin. Please let the receptionist know if you need to have your INR checked, and they will make you an appropriate appointment.
