Your questions answered

 

 

Q. Can I order without a referral letter from my Doctor?

A. YES. This is a private GP service, so we provide one for you. As soon as you complete your order online you will be sent a Pathology Pack which you take to a person qualified to take blood using the vacutainer system.

 


Q. How long do the blood tests take to process?

A. Every blood test has a turnaround time, which is quoted in working days. This excludes weekends and bank holidays.

 

 

Q. How will I get my results?

A. Your results will be sent to the email address that you supply when placing your order. By placing an order you are giving your consent for us to send results by email. To opt out and receive results by post, use postal@privatebloodtests.ie as your email address.


Q. Will you interpret my results?

A. One of our Private GP medical panel will provide comments free of charge if any results are out of parameters. If your results are within normal reference ranges we will just send the results straight through to you. Any comments are based upon blood tests alone in the absence of medical history or physical examination.


Q. Will you inform my GP?

A. We send your results to you alone and not to your GP. Although we may advise that you share these results with your GP you are under no obligation to do so. Please understand that the only circumstance in which your results would be shown to a third party would be if we were forced by a court order to reveal them.

 

Q. Where are you based?

A. We are based in Devon, England and this site has been set up to extend our UK private blood test service to Ireland as well. Call us at any time if you have any questions.
