When you need your blood taking, you want to make sure the experience is as easy, convenient, and painless as possible.
Blue Horizon Medicals are committed to doing just that. By partnering with Spire Healthcare, they make the process simple and seamless by offering easy-to-book appointments at your local Spire Hospital. Here’s how it works:
Booking your blood test
Blue Horizon have a comprehensive range of health checks and diagnostic blood tests available. The website shows the full range of tests on offer.
After you have selected the right test for you, simply order online through the secure payment system or chat to a member of the friendly, helpful team who can talk you through the test and take your payment. Once your order is placed, you’ll receive all the information you need to arrange your convenient blood draw appointment at a local Spire Hospital location.
Your pathology passport – the information sent to you after you place your order – will also tell you whether you need to fast ahead of your test
Blue Horizon partner with Spire Healthcare to offer a professional phlebotomy service. This is to ensure that your blood samples are taken and handled correctly and that your results are processed efficiently.
Unlike home testing kits, where you take the sample yourself, using on-site trained professionals reduce the likelihood of errors such as collecting an insufficient amount of blood or accidental contamination, which could delay your test results.
At your appointment, friendly staff will talk to you about your test, collect the blood sample and send it off for testing at an accredited partner laboratory. All you need to do is arrive for your appointment. They take care of the test and the rest!
The time it takes to receive your results will depend on the type of test you have chosen. But your results will be sent directly to you, via email, within the time specified.
You can also choose the option of reported or unreported results. Reported results include information and comment from a Blue Horizon GP which you may find helpful to discuss with your own consultant, or for your records.
If you would prefer to receive a paper copy of your results through the post, that can easily be arranged for you.
