Blood Tests

Blood tests are currently available Monday to Friday mornings.

If you are a member of UQMC, blood tests are included in your monthly fee for no extra charge.

If you are paying-per-visit your blood test is €10 which is added on to the price of €40 – €50 total. If your results are normal and you do not need a follow up consult, the doctor can discuss your results over the phone.  However, if your results are in anyway abnormal and you do need a follow up consult then this will also be charged at €40.

 

Test Results

Results of blood tests taken in the surgery usually return in 1 week.  However, a number of tests may take a little longer. Patients should contact the surgery 1 week after the tests have been taken, by phoning at the appropriate hours.

Monday – Thursday                            12.00 – 12.30 Nurse

Monday – Friday                                  12.30 – 1.00 Doctor

Please note:   Due to the large number of blood tests taken on a daily basis, it is not possible for patients to be contacted individually with results, so it is important that you contact the surgery.

Please note that reception team are not permitted to give test results to patients unless specifically instructed to do so by the Doctor.
