GP blood test requests

Suite 1 does not provide a service for GP patients unless it is for a specialised test

GP patients who need to attend Suite 1 for blood tests requiring specialised processing will be informed of this individually by the GP.

Blood tests are by appointment only. Please do not show up at any of the clinics without an appointment. When you are referred for a blood test or other phlebotomy-related procedure, you should receive a form which lists the clinics and times where and when this is available to you.
