Please note:

Patients presenting with a request form for blood tests will be viewed as providing implied consent and the venepuncture procedure explained to ensure that patients fully understand and are comfortable with the process. Any patients requiring information regarding the tests requested, their function and clinical implications will be referred to the requesting clinician. The patient will be afforded the opportunity to defer venepuncture until the requisite information has been obtained.
