For patients

If you are interested in a pathology test, please contact our bookings team on 0207 079 2100 (option 3) or email

We may need to arrange for you to have an appointment with one of our in-house GPs prior to your requested tests being performed. The reason for this is that all tests need to be referred by a doctor as they will be able to fully explain the meaning of the results.

Alternatively, you may ask your own GP to refer you for the tests using the downloadable link below.
