Blood Tests

Testing packs

The Thyroid Clinic is now able to offer its own tailored test kits done through our trusted partners at Pura diagnostics. Tests can either
be taken at home using our finger-prick testing kits or saliva kits, or, we can send out full blood draw kits for a nurse to take your bloods.  Please contact the clinic if you are close to the Bristol/Bath area as we can arrange blood draws for you in your own home. 

These kits are great for testing to see if you have a thyroid or hormonal problem prior to booking an appointment with us or for your own follow up/monitoring.

Prices include kits, P+P and The Thyroid Clinic’s interpretation of the results.

To order please click here and chose blood packs. Please say which blood pack you would like and add in your address.

N.B. If you are buying these kits without an appointment the results will not have a clinical context so explanation will not be as thorough as if you had an appointment with our doctor.  

If you book an appointment the cost of the blood tests will be 30% less. 

Costs are subject to change as they are set by the laboratory.

Blood testing in our clinics: 

At each appointment we will discuss the best blood tests to suit you and your budget. Bloods can either be taken at home using our finger-prick testing kits or we can send out full blood draw kits for a nurse to take your bloods.  Please contact the clinic if you are close to the Bristol/Bath area as we can arrange blood draws for you in your own home. 

Bloods arranged within the clinic are 25% cheaper than the costs above. 

You can arrange your own blood kits but you are responsible for all the sourcing, taking and results. 

Results

The results from our blood kits have a turnaround of 1 working day from when they are received in the lab and they come directly to the clinic.

Sample Collection

Most blood collection kits are able to be done at home using a finger-prick technique. We will provide with all you need to do this along with instructions. Some samples are done using saliva collection, again instructions will come with the kit.

If you find that finger-prick does not work well for you then there will be local clinics who can take your blood for a small fee. If you are in the Bristol/Bath area please contact us as we have a travelling phlebotomy service.

Will I have a copy of my blood test results?

If you are requesting blood kits outside of appointments the results will be sent directly to you with our advisory notes.  If you are registered with the clinic, you can always request a copy of your results to be sent to you, but following your appointment, your most recent blood tests will be put into your letter for you.

If you have arranged your own blood tests, the results will come to you and will need forwarding to the clinic. 

Home Blood Sample Collection

If you are in the Bristol area we can arrange for you to get your blood sample collected by a qualified healthcare professional from the comfort of your own home. Please contact the clinic for more information.
