Blood tests have a wide range of uses and are one of the most common types of medical tests.
For example, a blood test can be used to:
✓ assess your general health
✓ check if you have an infection
✓ see how well certain organs, such as the liver and kidneys, are working
✓ screen for certain genetic conditions
The blood test usually involves taking a blood sample from your arm. The arm is a convenient part of the body to use as it can be easily uncovered. The usual place to take a sample from is the inside of the elbow or wrist, where the veins are relatively close to the surface.
Blood samples from children are often taken from the back of the hand. Their skin may be numbed with a special spray or cream before the sample is taken.
The price of blood tests includes labour (nurse's work) plus the price of the actual tests.
