Full Blood Count (FBC)
A full blood count can help give an indication of your general health. The NHS suggest a full blood count may help detect signs of infection or inflammation and bleeding or clotting disorders.
Also called a haematology profile or complete blood count, there are many reasons you may want a full blood count test. If you’re feeling generally under the weather but you’re unsure why, it is a good base test which can help assess your general health. Although the test cannot detect blood cancer, abnormalities in any of the results can help determine whether further, more specific testing is required.
All our tests have been specially designed to be convenient and non-invasive. Once you’ve booked your appointment, full preparation instructions will be provided in your confirmation email or letter. You can continue to eat and drink normally before your appointment, and you’ll also remain fully clothed throughout.
