FULL BLOOD COUNT
The Full Blood Count (FBC) blood test, also known as a Complete Blood Count (CBC) or Haematology Profile, examines the components of blood, including red and white blood cells and platelets.
WHO IS THIS TEST FOR?
This Full Blood Count (FBC) is for individuals who wish to establish the health of their blood. It is an important blood test for people who have symptoms of anaemia or who suspect a viral or bacterial infection.
If you have any results out of the normal range we recommend you consult a doctor just to be sure that everything is ok.
