A blood test involves the phlebotomist taking a blood sample from a vein in your arm or sometimes your hand. Blood samples from children are most commonly taken from the back of the hand. You can find out more about blood tests, their purpose and the way they are performed on the NHS Choices website.
Results Of Tests And Investigations
We may contact you by telephone, or by letter, only if a result is abnormal and you require treatment or further investigations. You will not be contacted if your result is normal. The administrative staff will give results to you or you may be asked to speak to the nurse or doctor. Adults' results will not be given to anyone other than the patient, except in exceptional circumstances.
