Blood Tests

YourGP offer a complete range of blood tests enabling an accurate diagnosis of a wide range of illnesses and medical conditions.

We provide short-notice appointments and a fast turn around of results. Just a few drops of blood are all that is needed to tell if you are suffering from many diseases or infections, including:

  • Hepatitis C. Known as the ‘hidden disease’ around half of those who have it are unaware. It is vital to test for this disease as, if treatment is left too late, it can cause potentially fatal liver disease
  • Medical conditions like under or over-active thyroid and diabetes
  • Prostate cancer.  A simple blood test can detect prostate cancer from an early stage
  • Sexually transmitted infections including Syphilis and HIV
  • Lyme disease.  A horrible illness caught via tick bites and diagnosed via blood screening
  • Allergies
  • We can also help those who require Pregnancy and IVF treatment related blood tests

How it Works

Blood tests will usually be taken during a private consultation.  A blood test is a quick and simple process.

  • Your practitioner will take the sample from your arm
  • Your sample will be sent directly to our specialist laboratory
  • When arranged by you, your sample can be taken for you to send to your preferred laboratory (please note your practitioner will only report on samples sent to our specialist laboratory)

We generally have results within 48 hours. NB: some blood tests require a slightly longer culture period and the results take longer. We ask patients to phone for results between 3.30pm and 4.30pm.  We can e-mail results if required after talking to you. When appropriate a follow up appointment will be arranged.

It is obvious from the outset that Dr Benade is very experienced in the Occ Health field. Because my employer had referred me to her I expected a bias in their favour. I was completely wrong. Dr Benade was very attentive, thorough and fair. How I feel mattered and she understood my eagerness to recover and remain with my employer in the job I love
