Blood Tests


You don't need to make an appointment for a blood test, just visit one of our 12 Collection Centres across the region (see listings below)

Not all of our centres can offer testing to children - please read our Children Under Ten Guide for where to go

Prior to having a blood test, it would be useful to read our booklet - What You Need To Know Before Your Blood Test


Specialised Tests


Some specialised tests including GTT, FNA, Scabies and DNA are only available at some of our Collection Centres and require a booked appointment

Call 03 359 0900 to make an appointment for these tests

Download our Information Guide for more details
