How it works

1) PAY FOR YOUR TEST ONLINE

Simply pick the test you need and pay for it online. Choose a preferred appointment time and Nuffield Health hospital location best for you.

2) WE’LL CALL YOU BACK WITHIN 24 WORKING HOURS TO ARRANGE YOUR BOOKING

Appointments are available in as little as 48 hours, Monday to Friday, and can be booked up to two weeks in advance.

3) ATTEND YOUR APPOINTMENT

Appointments usually last 15 minutes and will be carried out by an experienced Phlebotomist (a specialist in taking blood samples). A sample of your blood will be taken and sent to one of our laboratories for analysis.

4) GET YOUR RESULTS BY POST OR EMAIL

Most test results are available within four working days. Your results will be sent by 1st class post to you and your referrer. We can securely email you the results if you prefer.

You will need a referral from a healthcare professional to use this service and we will need evidence of that referral. If you don't have a referral, don't worry, we can provide you one for an additional £25 charge for our GPs to support your request subject to their approval.
