Most tests require a small blood sample, but some require a urine dipstick test. For all services, we ask that you make an appointment with our pharmacist for the screening service you require. At this appointment, you will be asked a few health screening questions to make sure the test is appropriate for you an to offer you the best advice for your health. You will be given information about the test, how it works and asked to sign a consent form
The results will be available, usually within a few minutes, and professional advice will be on hand to explain the results, their meaning and if treatment or follow up is recommended.
All tests and results are entirely confidential, and no information is passed on without your explicit consent.
A rapid test requiring a small finger prick blood sample to screen for Gluten Intolerance (indicating possible presence of Coeliac disease).
This test looks for the presence of gluten antibodies - which indicates that your body is responding negatively to the protein gluten, found in wheat products. If you currently follow a gluten free diet, or do not eat wheat, then the test may not respond.
A visual result is available in under 10 minutes.
