Private Blood Test FAQs

Is a blood test painful?

It is a simple process in which a doctor places a needle into a blood vessel on the inside of your forearm, and uses an attached syringe to draw out a small measure of blood. The sensation is one of a brief prick or scratch, but the drawing of blood itself is not painful. You may experience some discomfort, and some patients feel light-headed briefly after the process. Be sure to alert your doctor if you know you react this way, so that they can take extra care to ensure your comfort.

How long will it take to get my results?

Blood testing with our laboratory is as fast as is technically possible. Different techniques take different times for a result to come back. However, the vast majority of results are ready within 12 hours. Your doctor will let you know turnaround times during your consultation or otherwise, please ask the team when you call to book.

What is your result interpretation policy?

Except for sexual health and pregnancy testing, you should have a consultation with a doctor in order for your results to be interpreted by them later. This is because it is not good medical practice to interpret results for patients where medical history and symptoms have not been discussed. You can have tests without a consultation at our clinic and the results will be emailed to you to provide to your GP or specialist.
