General Information about tests:

If you would like to be tested during a screening session you will have a fingerprick test.hepatitis sheffield lancet fingerprick testing driedbloodspot
(Alternatively you may have a blood test at your GP surgery)
 

For a test, we will prick a finger using a small needle (similar to finger prick for diabetes)
 and a few drops of blood will be collected on a card.hepatitis sheffield driedbloodspot testing

Can the test cause any discomfort?

Usually the procedure is quick and causes minimal pain that rapidly goes.
Sometimes the finger prick needs to be repeated if not enough blood has been collected to do all of the tests.

How long do I have to wait for the results?

The results of the tests will be will be available after two weeks.
Your GP will be informed of the results obtained. If any result is reactive we will ask you to have a blood test at the hospital.

The results are confidential: they are available to you and your GP. If somebody else asks for the results we will not give them unless we have your permission.
