Arrived for a blood test after having only water for 12hrs as directed, for a C peptide, fasting glucose,fasting lipid profile, PSA and TFT tests. After waiting 45 minutes I was summined for tge test only to be told that this unit hadn't got ICE on which one of the tests depended. I was told to go to Trafford General. Brilliant - Trafford General doesn't carry out blood tests after 12.30pm - the time now was 12.25.
I find it pathetic that a simple thing like ICE is missing from this unit thus making have to repeat the whole process again at another unit!
