In-house Laboratory


In House Laboratory

Our in house lab is fully equipped with the latest equipment to run a wide range of blood and other tests quickly and efficiently.


These tests include full biochemistry (looking at, for example, liver and kidney function), haematology (looking for signs of anaemia or infection) and also endocrinology (looking at thyroid and cortisol levels amongst other tests).


A comprehensive in house lab enables us to run tests quickly. This allows us to get the results in a very short time, resulting in a rapid diagnosis, and the possibility of early treatment, for the patient.


We also have a microscope and facilities for staining samples, allowing us to evaluate urine, skin and blood samples.


Some samples are sent to external labs for more complex or unusual tests and we have arranged daily collections for these items. We aim to get the results as quickly as possible and the time taken for these results will be discussed at the time of consultation,as it may vary depending on the test.
