Blood tests have a wide range of uses and are one of the most common types of medical test. Taking the blood sample is also called phlebotomy – you might find this term used in some of our services.
A blood test can be used to:
- assess your general state of health
- check if you have an infection
- see how well certain organs, such as the liver and kidneys, are working
- screen for certain genetic conditions
