Our local private GP has various clinical laboratory testing equipment at their clinic in Hartlepool and is able to do certain testing on-site but some tests may need to be sent off to an external laboratory and results being relayed back to the GP. Where a blood draw is required, this can be done by the GP at their clinic.
Genova Diagnostics provide clinical laboratory testing for practitioners that are equivalent to or in some cases more thorough than many of the tests that you would have through your regular GP. They provide a wide range of tests for suspected conditions related to the endocrine, cardiovascular, digestive and immune systems. Home test kit samples are sent to a laboratory for testing and the results are then relayed back to your practitioner.
These private services allow a quicker and more convenient way of accessing diagnostic tests and results which can then be discussed with your GP for fast-track follow-up and more accurate referral.
If your practitioner suspects an underlying condition that is contributing to your symptoms or is of concern then a set of tests may be recommended through our local private GP or Genova Diagnostics to allow more timely identification of potential underlying conditions.
