Tests and samples


Blood tests


Our phlebotomist can take blood for adults (and children in some cases, please contact reception for further information). Blood test may also be carried out at West Berkshire Community Hospital, Thatcham by appointment only. To book an appointment at the hospital, please call 01635 273343. All blood samples are transported to The Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading for testing and results are usually available 5 days after your test. Please contact reception on 01635 248251 for your results.


X-Rays, swabs, urine and stool samples


These results can take up to a week to come back to us. Please contact reception at least one week after you have handed your sample in for the results.




Our receptionists may be able to tell you your results over the telephone if the GP has seen and commented on the results. However, there may be occasions where a receptionist is unable or not permitted to give these results and in these situations a face to face/telephone appointment can be arranged for you to speak to a GP.
