Blood Testing

A blood test is taking a sample of blood for testing in a laboratory. Blood tests have a wide range of uses and are one of the most common types of medical test.

The Phlebotomy Department at the Mater Private offers a walk-in service.

The services are available Monday - Friday from 8am - 4pm and no appointment is necessary.

A referral letter from your GP or Consultant is required.

Same day reporting for routine tests is available and results are posted or, where requested, telephoned.

Abnormal results are telephoned to the referring doctor on the same day.

A discipline-specific Consultant is available in each laboratory specialty to discuss specific results if required.
