In an occupational setting, blood tests are usually required to confirm immunity has been gained from vaccinations provided as part of the employment process, or to identify the presence of harmful substances such as lead, as part of the health surveillance programme. However, blood tests can be used for a wide range of purposes including as part of an employee health check to promote greater health awareness.
Whilst many blood tests can be obtained from a patient’s GP, the pressure on NHS surgeries is currently so great that many employees are struggling to access primary care, and practices are struggling to meet demand. The employee’s GP will also be reluctant to share results with their employer and only the employee is able to obtain a copy with the employer not being able to see them. D4Health will capture the employees consent at the point of referral and share blood test results within 48 hours in an easy-to-understand report format.
D4Health provide a comprehensive list of hundreds of blood tests and profiles including tiredness and fatigue profiles, cancer screening, wellman and wellwoman profiles and many more. For our full range of blood tests please contact us.
Once the employee has signed their consent form, and had their bloods taken, it usually takes 48-72 hours for results to be available. Our team will provide these to you via email, or via our client portal if you are signed up to this.
Our team will advise you if there are any results which require a follow up or further action to be taken.
