Frequently Asked Question

Do I need to prepare for my test?

This is a not fasting test, there is no need to not eat before this test, we do recommended drink plenty of water –  please keep hydrated!

We do suggest keeping your arm warm, as being cold can sometimes make it harder to draw your blood.

If blood tests make you anxious, let your nurse know at the start of your appointment. They will do their best to make the experience as stress-free as possible.

How and when do I get my results?

Melio Health are our labs and diagnostic partner for screening services, and will provide you with your results in 2-3 business days of testing. During you appointment you will be registered for an account with Melio Health, and you will receive your results through this portal once the doctors have analysed them. You will be notified by an SMS that your results are ready for you to view.

You will need to consent to the nurse setting up a Melio Health account for you and your personal data being entered on the Melio patient portal; their terms and conditions can be found Melio Health Terms of Use.
