Blood tests help us to better understand your body and the issues that might affect your health. A blood test involves drawing blood, usually via a hypodermic needle inserted into a vein in the arm, and sending the sample for testing. Taking a blood sample is usually painless and over in a matter of seconds.
Nuffield Health provides a wide range of pathology tests to investigate symptoms, diagnose conditions and help to pin point allergies. We can test blood for thousands of conditions, so it’s important you know what test or test profile is right for you.
