Waiting for blood tests and results can be an anxious time. If you’ve been referred by a GP for a test and don’t want to worry or wait, Nuffield Health can help. Our national network of fully accredited laboratories delivers fast, reliable results at a competitive price – wherever you are in the UK.

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.
