Phlebotomy / Blood Tests

Unfortunately, we are unable offer blood tests at the Surgery - our Practice Nurses do not have the capacity to do blood tests in addition to the numerous services they already offer.

If you are requested to do a blood test by the GP, please attend St Mark's Hospital walk-in clinic between 08:30-16:00, Monday to Friday - no appointment is necessary. It is advisable to do urgent and fasting blood tests at the walk-in clinic. St Marks Phlebotomy clinic is taking all necessary precautions during the coronavirus pandemic.

To make an out-of-hours (evening / weekend) appointment for a routine blood test, you can call the GP Hub directly 03000 24 0009 to book an appointment at St Marks or King Edward VII. You may need your NHS number to book the appointment.  If you do not know your NHS no. please call the surgery and we will be happy to pass it on to you. Please note that due to the current COVID-19 period, you will be asked to wait in the car until they call you on your mobile advising that it is safe to enter.

Please ensure your blood test is already on the system before you attend - Reception can check for you.  

INR/Warfarin monitoring is available with our Practice Nurse, Sarah Carbonaro.

If you are required to do a Fasting Blood Test, you should have nil-by-mouth for the preceding 12 hours prior to the test. You may drink some water if necessary.

Paediatric blood tests for children under 14 years are carried out at Wexham Park Hospital only. For more information call 01753 633 000.

For Test Results, please call Reception in the afternoon where we can inform you of the GP's comments over the phone. However, admin staff are not clinical and cannot discuss any results with you. If you would like a printout, Reception Staff will be happy to do this for you, please pop in after 10:30. For routine results, please wait at least three days before calling. Other tests may take longer to complete.

If you have been requested to do a test by a consultant, please contact their offices to find out your results.
