Medical Tests

Blood Tests

Blood tests should be authorised by a clinician. If your blood test is for a hospital consultant, you will need to bring a blood form provided by them. 

When your doctor advised tests for you, he/she will give you the following: 

  • a booking and instructions slip for you to show to reception - it instructs them when to book you in for the tests we do at the surgery, and it also has written instructions for you on how to get your results. Sometimes your doctor will want to see you with the results, or he may ask you to phone his secretary

Blood tests for very young children may be done at the Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford and your doctor will prescribe a local anaesthetic cream to put on an hour before the test, to numb the skin.

You can find out more about blood tests,  how they are performed and their function by the visiting the NHS Choices website.
