At Beacon Medical Practice we offer blood test appointments to all patients when requested by a clinician. These tests are performed by our competent Health Care Assistants on a daily basis. Sometimes patients may need to be directed to the hospital clinics for their blood test, for example if the hospital consultant has requested, you may be diverted to the hospital phlebotomy service.
Once the results of the blood test have been made available to the surgery, they will be reviewed by a Clinician who will review the result and grade accordingly. If there are any concerns regarding the blood result, the clinician will follow up with the patient. Patients are also able to call the results line to request results. Sometimes our staff may not be able to advise the patient of the result and advice will be given to speak to or arrange an appointment to see the GP.
