Our team has access to the full range of the most up to date allergy and other diagnostic blood tests. These include specific IgE testing as well as component tests that can help differentiate between mild and more severe allergies.
We also have access to the new generation of protein micro-array tests (eg ISAC chip).
Phlebotomy (blood taking) services are usually offered on site at the time of the appointment, but can be arranged at a later date if preferred, and all our blood tests are outsourced to fully accredited/certified diagnostic pathology laboratories, recognised by all major insurers.
Please note that the laboratories we use are entirely independent of our practice and it is the patient’s responsibility to ensure that they are fully insured or can afford to pay for them. The cost of the blood test is an issue between the patient and the laboratory and our practice is not able to offer discounts or negotiate prices before or after they have been taken.
