How Do The Tests Work?

There is no better way to check for underlying health problems, or monitor existing conditions, than with a blood test. From our dedicated, state-of-the-art laboratory in London we offer the latest in pathology testing solutions across many disciplines including biochemistry, immunology, haematology, sexual health screening and molecular biology. 

Whether you are concerned about your health, managing an existing condition or simply curious, a blood test with London Medical Laboratory provides a fast, affordable and easy way to start taking charge of your own health. 

We offer a range of testing options to try and make the process as simple, stress free and convenient as possible. 

  • Home Testing Kits - User-friendly finger-prick self-testing kits sent to you using the Royal Mail 1st Class Tracked postal service
  • In-Store Phlebotomy - For even faster results you can come into one of our stores to have your blood taken by one of our qualified phlebotomists
  • Mobile Phlebotomy - We can even come to you! For added convenience one of our qualified mobile phlebotomists can visit you at home or in your office

For more information on the different options available please see below. 

You will receive your results on the day after we receive your sample in our laboratory. We run a 24/7 laboratory operation and test all samples as quickly as possible after receiving them which enables our team of in-house GPs to review and communicate your results in the fastest possible timeframe. 

*It is important to note that blood tests alone are not a substitute for seeing a doctor, particularly if you have any symptoms. You should not make a diagnosis or start any treatment without a consultation with a doctor or suitably trained healthcare professional.
