What is the Phlebotomy / Sample handling fee?

This is the fee for the sample handling. This is a standard charge to either draw blood or handle urine or stool samples. This fee must be paid once per visit. If this is prepaid (when booking online) it is nonrefundable but can be used at any date. The price is £50 if paid in person or £30 if prepaid when booking online.

For most tests you do not need to have a referral, but you do need to know which test or set of tests you will need to have. Whilst we can (when possible) help to explain tests available, it is  the patient’s responsibility to select the correct test/s. For some specialist tests, you may require a doctors referral. This will be communicated to you upon enquiry.

We recommend fasting for 8 hours ahead of certain tests. These tests include glucose, cholesterol/lipid profile and homocysteine. In the event that it is difficult for you to fast, this will be noted by the phlebotomist, and where applicable adjusted reference ranges applied. If you are unsure whether you need to fast, please confirm. 

At Clinilabs we do our best to give your results to you as soon as possible. Each test has an estimated turnaround time which can be found on each test’s page on our website. Please note that these are estimates and whilst we typically provide results sooner than advertised, we may in some cases require more time. If you are unsure about the turnaround time of your specific test and or require tests urgently, please confirm ahead of your visit.

If you are having a “same day” test such as a pregnancy test and would like to have your results on the same day, we strongly recommend you book in your appointment before 1:30pm.  The earlier your appointment the better. 

 

Same day results done before the cut off time, are usually out by 6pm. 

We always try our very best to have your results back to you as soon as possible, so this is likely. We cannot make any promise that results will be out sooner. 

We do partner with medical insurance providers such as Bupa UK, Bupa Global, Allianz, Cigna, WPA, Vitality. Please note that pre-authorisation is required for payment by insurance. We will also require payment card details to be kept on file; which will only be used in the event your insurance company does not cover your treatment. 

Many tests have both IgG and IgM. IgG looks at previous infection and/or immunity, whilst IgM looks at current/recent infection. Whilst the cut off point for previous/recent infection is typically around 4-6 weeks it does vary by test. We recommend that you confirm which is suitable for you ahead of your test.
