After the earlier post about Boots an pharmacy in general asking about blood tests I was just wondering where you get these books and who fills them in? When I lived in Wolverhampton the hospital gave me a book. I would take it to the rheumy blood clinic. They would take my blood and fill in results from the previous one. Since moving to Leicester about 6 years ago no book. The hospital blood clinic is a general one. They just take blood and send results to the doctors. Or so I'm told. Every time I want the results I have to go into the doctors and ask and just told by the receptionist "oh they are fine, doctor will contact you if not". They are always too busy to print them out so filling a book in - no chance! I only see my results every 6months when I go to hospital for my rheumy appointment.
