How can I get a blood test?

To complete a blood test, you'll need to draw a blood sample. This can either be completed by a clinician at one of our Mayfield Clinic practices, or in certain scenarios we can send you a home blood testing kit, and you can draw your own blood (usually via fingerprick). To learn more about blood tests available as home blood testing kits, click here.

We are able to offer in-person blood testing, either within:

If you require a GP to advise you on the appropriate test, then you will need to book a standard GP consultation. If you already know the test you require, then you can attend the clinic for a blood testing consultation. Please note that within a blood testing consultation, our clinicians will not have time to provide clinical advice - it is solely an appointment to draw blood and order your test.

Please be aware that the cost of the blood tests will be charged in addition to the consultation fee.

How will I get my results?

Once your test has been completed and paid for, it is sent to the laboratory for analysis. Result timelines will vary depending on the test/s you require. Once the results have been reported to us by the laboratory, we'll share them on with you via SMS. The SMS will contain a link to view your results, and a summary of the outcome from our GP. If you have further questions following this, please book a follow-up appointment.

Frequently asked questions

How can I book a blood test?

You can obtain a blood test in a standard consultation by booking a GP appointment where you can also discuss which blood tests you need. If you only require a phlebotomy service (your blood taken with no advice given), you can book a phlebotomy appointment. You can book both these appointments via the booking button on this page.

Which blood test do I need?

If you are unsure which blood test(s) you require, please book a GP appointment - we are unable to advise about blood tests within a standard phlebotomy consultation which is just for drawing blood.

Can I eat before my blood test?

Some tests require you to not eat or drink for a certain period of time before the test. Ask one of our GPs if the test you are taking is a fasting test or not.

Can I continue taking my medication before a blood test?

Usually, you can continue taking your medication before a blood test. Our GPs will inform you if any change must be made regarding your medication in advance of the test.

What should I do if my blood test results are abnormal?

If your blood test results come back abnormal, we recommend that you book a follow-up consultation with one of our GPs to discuss what your results could mean.

Does using Mayfield Clinic affect my NHS GP?

You can use Mayfield Clinic alongside your existing NHS GP practice. We believe in joined-up care; we don’t believe that it is in your best interests to have different doctors independently trying to treat you. For this reason, once you’ve seen a Mayfield Clinic GP we aim (with your permission) to share your consultation notes back with your current NHS GP. For example, if you can’t get an appointment at your local GP practice this week, you can book in with Mayfield Clinic’s GPs. With your consent, we’ll share the Mayfield Clinic consultation notes back with you and your NHS GP, so that when you next see your NHS GP they will have a full picture of your care history.

Why should I use Mayfield Clinic for blood testing?

At Mayfield Clinic, we provide a GP-led blood testing service. This means that our GPs are able to advise on the appropriate test for your needs, and they will also draw your blood themselves.

Our practices and GPs help us to us to provide:

At your blood test appointment, you should allow up to 10 minutes for the GP to draw your blood and complete the laboratory paper work. The GP will take a small amount of blood, usually from the inside of your elbow using a needle. A soft strap (tourniquet) may be put around your arm first, as this makes drawing blood easier. Your blood will be collected in a small tube which is then sent to the laboratory for testing.

You may get some small swelling or bruising from the blood test, but this will go away in a few days. Your results will be reported to your by SMS by the GP.
