Where to find someone to draw blood for private home testing kit.Inverness

H folksHave been wanting to do tyhe full thyroid plus 12 test from blue horizon, I thought this would be a home testing,finger prick test as i had from them before but i find it is not, I one in inverness my GP will not draw good for private testing. I am really not feeling well ,had RAI last year,was on levo snow on naturthroid so just want to know where i am at now as still not feeling well.

I have no idea if there are private clinics up here i doubt it never heard of them,certainly no pupa hospitals. So i guess if any of you have had private testing and need someone to draw blood how do you go about it. Thank you.

Contact your local hospital and ask them how much they charge to do a private blood draw.

There are some private phlebotomy services in and Blue Horizon have phlebotomy services

If you can't find a phlebotomist contact BH and ask for one of their home test finger prick tests.


the test i want needs to have blog drawn have used the finger test before.


s0rry should read more blood drawn finger prick test does not produce enough.



Yes, it's just a smaller amount, enough to fill a microtainer.

Hi Ravensgeo,

I am also in Inverness, and recently diagnosed (within the last three weeks with an underactive thyroid) But back to the point where to get blood drawn. Many years ago I required a private x-ray and Raigmore would nt do it but the hospital in Golspie is a bit of a drag to get there I know but if you have no luck localy you could alays call them and ask if they would do a private blood draw for you.

Kind Regards
