Blood Tests

Who do I see?

Healthcare Assistant / GP

Advice:

To book a blood test please call us on 0345 337 1120 to book a phlebotomy appointment with the healthcare assistant. All appointments for blood tests MUST have been requested by one of our doctors or nurses before they can be booked.

Appointments for blood tests recommended by hospital specialists are normally arranged and performed in the ‘hub’ (which is also located in Forres Health and Care Centre).

If you feel you may need to get a blood test, please submit an online medical consultation request for the GP Clinical Team giving us as much information about why you think this is needed as you can. If our GP team agree that a blood test is required we may offer you a blood test appointment directly or we may offer you an appointment with a GP or other suitable clinician to discuss your request further.

All tests including blood tests are at the discretion and request of a doctor or other clinician. There is no automatic right to get a test ‘on demand’ within the NHS.

Further information about blood tests is available from NHS inform.

If you cannot use the online service please call us on 0345 337 1120 and a member of the care navigation team will help you.
