Additional costs & exclusions
For any additional tests that may be recommended, prices will always be clarified upfront, prior to undertaking any tests.
Please note, the blood test will be performed by a nurse either on-site (a phlebotomy fee of £55 will apply), or at two convenient locations, 111 Harley Street a short walk away, or our clinic at 15 Austin Friars, EC2N 2HE (15 minutes away by tube) at no extra charge. Kindly note that 111 Harley Street is open until 4pm, therefore for appointments made with Mr Pandya at 3:30 pm, this will mean you will be unable to visit this clinic for a blood test on the same day; however, you can visit 15 Austin Friars or come back another day to avoid The Portland Hospital’s phlebotomy fee charge.
