Tests & Results

Blood Tests

Blood tests are undertaken by phlebotomists based at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Rhyl. Blood tests are by appointment only and can be arranged by phoning 03000 850 047 between 9am - 4pm or by visiting Blood Test - Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (nhs.wales)

For strictly house-bound patients only we will arrange for a District Nurse to attend.

There are limited appointments available at the surgery for blood tests.  Please state that the appointment is for a blood test when you arrange - blood tests can only be undertaken on week-day mornings in order that the sample can be transported to the laboratory on the same day. 

When you have your blood test you will be given a slip outlining the tests you have had done, and how to get the results. It is your responsibility to contact the surgery for the result - please bear in mind that the results have to be sent to the surgery and reviewed by the doctor who requested them before the result can be given to you. 

Results

To make it easier for patients we have a results system so that you do not need to make an appointment with the doctor just to get your test results - the doctor will leave sufficient instructions with the results line clerks to enable you to make sense of the results without the inconvenience of attending the surgery. You can telephone for results on 01745 350680 between 10am to 4pm.  You can also have results sent directly to your mobile phone by text.  Please let us know if you wish to consent to this service.  You can update you current mobile phone number and provide consent HERE.

Please note, we are unable to provide the results of any tests that have been requested in secondary care. You will need to contact the secretary/department of the consultant who requested the test.
