Blood Tests

Phlebotomy / Blood Tests

If a doctor or nurse has advised a blood test you will be asked to either book an appointment through the community treatment centres 0141 355 1525 or in certain cases asked to book in with the practice nurse. 

FASTING BLOOD TESTS                                                                                                                                                        

If you have been asked to have a fasting blood test you should attend in the morning and have had nothing to eat for 12 hours prior to the test. You may drink water but nothing else in this time period.


It is important that you follow up and find out the results of your blood tests.  You may have been asked to make a follow up appointment to discuss your blood tests.  If you are phoning for results please allow about 1 week before calling the surgery (your GP will inform you if the test may take come back sooner or if it may take longer to come back). For results / prescriptions / enquiries, please call the surgery after 11am to leave the lines free before this time for those requesting an appointment.

Normal results: the receptionists may be able to tell you over the phone if all the tests were normal.

Abnormal results: the GPs review all the results and you will be contacted if there is anything that needs to be discussed urgently.  If a result is abnormal but does not need to be discussed urgently, then you may be contacted by letter, text or telephone by our reception staff.   If you would like to discuss the results with a doctor then please arrange a telephone appointment with the GP who ordered the tests if this is possible.
