The blood test booking line does not book appointments for under 12s and these cannot be booked via the online booking system at any of the sites. See information regarding children’s blood tests in the FAQ section below.
The following tests must be performed at a specific site:
Quantiferon: Only available at Singleton, Morriston or NPTH Monday - Thursday mornings.

Blood tests, sometimes referred to as phlebotomy, have a wide range of uses and are one of the most common types of medical tests.
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 and screen for certain genetic conditions.
