Whilst the majority of our tests are from blood samples, other tests may be performed on samples of tissue, urine, stools (faeces) or other body fluids and secretions. A blood test involves taking blood from a vein in your arm. Our specimen collection staff are extensively trained in this skill. All of our equipment is sterile.

It is vital that we make sure all of your personal details are correct. Our staff will ask for your name and date of birth and they will also check your contact details, the doctor’s details and other questions that are specific to the testing. Please let our staff know if you are on a pension or Health Care card. Once your details have been confirmed, the specimen collector will examine your arm to find a suitable vein. If you feel uncomfortable, please do not hesitate to inform our collector. You may prefer to lie down if you are feeling faint or nervous. Once a suitable vein is found, the collector will cleanse the skin with an alcohol swab and then insert a sterile needle into your vein to obtain the sample.

Different tubes are required for different types of tests, so there may be more than one tube of blood collected. All tubes will be labelled with your name and date of birth. After the blood has been drawn and the needle has been removed, pressure should be applied to the site to minimise bleeding. A cotton wool ball and/or Band-Aid will be applied. If you are aware of any allergic reactions to alcohol swabs or tapes please let our collector know and we will find an alternative. It is important that you avoid heavy lifting or strenuous exercise in the following 24 hours to avoid bruising or bleeding.

Mandy enjoys spending time with her family, gardening, and being creative in the kitchen. She also enjoys writing poems and short stories. She has a new found love of acquiring a greater knowledge on her own and her family’s health and fitness.
