Blood TestsBlood tests are performed between 8.15am and 9.30am on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings by phlebotomists who visit the surgery from Airedale Hospital. Alternatively you may take the request form to Keighley Health Centre or Airedale Hospital at the times listed on the form. In addition our domiciliary phlebotomist, Lizzie, visits housebound patients at home to perform blood tests.
ECGsOur nurses are able to perform ECGs for patients with heart and blood pressure problems at the request of the doctor.
24hr Blood Pressure MonitoringThis test may be requested by the doctor for certain patients with high blood pressure and can be performed by our nurses.
SpirometryThis test of lung function can also be performed within the surgery and may be used to monitor patients with COPD and to diagnose certain lung conditions.
X-rays and UltrasoundsThe doctor may refer you for radiology tests such as x-rays. Most of these are done at Keighley Health Centre on Oakworth Road but some more specialist scans may need to be done at Airedale Hospital.
Chlamydia ScreeningChlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection which may cause no symptoms but can cause longterm health problems and infertility. We offer chlamydia screening by a simple urine test to under 25s - ask for a chlamydia testing kit at Reception or when you see the doctor or nurse.
