You may have been referred for a blood test to confirm your Doctor’s diagnosis, to check on your state of health or to check to see if your treatment is working and your health is improving.
We may also do testing to give an early warning of possible problems you may encounter or to monitor optimum drug levels as in Warfarin treatment.
No appointment is needed in the blood test area but certain times can be busier than others so you may have a small wait.
