Private Blood Tests
Our staff are trained to take blood samples for private blood tests. We offer a comprehensive range of blood test options, so if you need a private blood test that isn’t in the list below contact us to find out if we can offer it.
You can expect your blood test results within 7 working days. Ultrasound Direct will not review or interpret your private blood test results - we recommend you discuss your results with your preferred healthcare provider.
Your blood sample is analysed in the UK by our authorised partners TDL. By booking a private blood test appointment with us you are agreeing to your personal information being shared with TDL solely for the purpose of this test. Your express permission for this will also be asked during your appointment.
Frequently Asked Questions
If you have a needle phobia, previous negative experiences with blood draw appointments or you are particularly anxious about your appointment please contact your clinic using the details on the clinic pages and let us know.

No, we will send you the results and recommend that you share these with your GP or fertility provider.
It is not unusual for some bleeding to occur under the skin following your private blood test and sometimes this can extend a little further around the puncture site. If this causes you concern, check with your practice nurse.
Sometimes we cannot get a blood sample from you. This can be for many reasons, such as not being hydrated enough, feeling cold or having another blood test recently. We will always offer you another appointment so we can try again.
