Fasting Rule: It is necessary to fast 12 hours for cholesterol test and 12 hours for glucose test.
INR (Warfarin Levels):
Patients on warfarin because of a risk factor for clotting can have their INR levels checked. It takes 24-48 hours to get a result from the labs, and the doctor then decides on the correct dose of warfarin, and when the patient should next attend for an INR check.
A Courier Service brings blood and other samples, such as urine and swabs to the Cork University Hospital Labs at 13.00 (Mon-Fri), because of this all blood tests are carried out in the mornings. There is a cost for this courier service.
It is important that you contact the surgery for your results. You are advised to ring the Nurses-line on Tuesday or Thursday between 2.00pm and 3.00pm for all your results.
