For patients requiring a blood test, appointments are available at our Park and Wheal Northey sites. There is also some limited availability at Foxhole. For those patients unable to make normal opening hours, appointments will also be available at the Carlyon Road Health Hub between 08:00 and 09:30 Monday to Friday and between 17:00 and 19:30 Monday to Thursday. Appointments can be made by calling 01726 75555 or by booking online. Please note it is essential to make an appointment for a blood test.
Please share with the receptionist if you have been asked to make a fasting blood test appointment. This will ensure an early appointment is offered to you.
MSU (Mid Stream Urine) Tests
We can only test Mid-Stream Urine Samples (MSUs) if they have been requested by our clinical staff. These samples should be brought into reception before 12:30 Monday to Friday.
Alternatively, for women aged 16-65, if you think you have a urinary tract infection, you can take your MSU to a local pharmacy as they may be able to issue you antibiotic treatment.
Warfarin Monitoring (INR)
Our Warfarin monitoring (INR) clinics are held at Park, Wheal Northey and at the Carlyon Road Health Hub. Patients are able to book appointments at whatever surgery site is most convenient to them. Booking is essential. More information can be obtained from the health care assistant when you attend for your next blood test.
Housebound patients who are requiring INR testing will have their blood taken as normal by the District Nursing Team.
Urgent Blood Tests
Our staff at the Carlyon Road Health Hub still provide ‘on the day’ URGENT blood tests to patients at the request of a doctor, as well as booked appointments and INR clinics.
Blood Test Results
Blood test results are available online if you have a SystmOne online account or after 14:00 Monday to Friday by visiting any of our sites or phoning 01726 75555.
