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.
