Our nurses can visit you at your home or place of work to take your blood quickly, conveniently and professionally. All nurses are registered with the NMC and are a minimum Band 5 - simply choose the tests that you need, and select a nurse home visit at checkout. We charge a nominal fee of £55 for this extra service which is very convenient for those without the ability to travel to a clinic.
Once you have placed an order for your required blood tests online, selecting a nurse home visit as your collection option in checkout, we will send you out the relevant blood test kit by post. If you have supplied us with your mobile telephone number we will also send you a text message to confirm that we have passed your details to your local nurse.
