Types of Test

Blood Tests

We offer both fasting and non fasting blood tests every day, from Monday to Friday. Blood tests take about 6 minutes to complete.

The easiest way to book your blood test is via the NHS App.

Alternatively, you can call us on 01373 301301.

Most blood tests are requested by a health care professional electronically, but if you are given a form regarding your blood test please make sure you bring it with you to your appointment.


Frome Medical Practice offers ECG tests, when a healthcare professional has decided one is needed.

ECGs, which take about 15 minutes, are available on a daily basis and can be booked by telephoning 01373 301301.

Urine Tests

We do not test urine unless this has been requested by a health professional. If you have been requested to provide a urine sample, bottles are available for patients to collect at the Information Desk.

Please note that the laboratory do not do routine pregnancy testing. Fast, reliable pregnancy tests can be purchased at a pharmacy.

Your Results

Test results are usually available 5 working days after the test.  We will contact you if these are abnormal to arrange any follow-up or treatment required.
