I have had dramas with the two lots of finger prick tests that I have done. While I did eventually get my samples I am not sure that the trauma was worth the convenience.
Therefore, I am looking for somewhere in Edinburgh to get bloods drawn. I previously went to the Edinburgh Clinic, which is fine, but they have just raised their price to £45 from £30. I tried the Private GP and their price is a whopping £75! I phoned the Spire and the Nuffield but they will only do it if you buy the test from them.
My NHS GP won't do it. So my one remaining hope is that somebody in Edinburgh has an NHS GP who will also take private (paying) patients for phlebotomy, for a reasonable charge. Short of writing to all the GPs in Edinburgh, maybe one of you knows a place?
