Blood Tests

blood_tests_4A blood test is when a sample of blood is taken for testing in a laboratory. Blood tests have a wide range of uses and are one of the most common types of medical test. For example, a blood test can be used to:

 

  • assess your general state of health
  • see how well certain organs, such as the liver and kidneys, are functioning

 

A blood test usually involves the phlebotomist taking a blood sample from a blood vessel in your arm, and the usual place for a sample is the inside of the elbow or wrist  where the veins are relatively close to the surface.

Please note that some blood tests need to be performed by the phlebotomist in the morning. 

You can find out more about blood tests, their purpose and the way they are performed on the NHS Choices website.
