Transported Mother to hospital (Derby Community ) for blood test with form from GP.
Was told test was not possible because Mother had not fasted.
The GP did not say to fast before the test. I understand he was busy and it may just have slipped his mind.
More annoyingly the form itself does not inform the patient to fast. This should be in large easily visible letters across the form.
