Phlebotomy – Blood Tests

We provide a daily service available by appointment each morning (Mon-Fri), run by our phlebotomist. Your Doctor will order whatever blood test you need, please book your appointment at reception. The nurse will give you a card with a phone number to ring to obtain your results.

Monday- Friday between 2.00pm and 2.45pm for all your results.

Phone Number: +353 87 1343131

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.
