Blood tests

Does anyone know if it is ok to give blood the day before having blood tests at the doctors.

I have called the NHS National Blood Service line and they are unsure as whether it will affect the results.

I am unable to speak to a doctor at the surgery unless I make an appointment.

I missed my last donation session due to having a cold so don't really want to miss this one unless I have to

Thanks Choc - spent 30 minutes on the phone trying to find out and get an answer here in 2 minutes :-D
Should be fine, you could also ring NHS Direct for advice/info.
I used to work for the Blood Transfusion Service. As long as the needles can be verified as clean ie at a GP or hospital setting, it shouldn't prevent you donating.

Good on you for being a donor :-D
should be fine.. i cant see why not... enjoy your cuppa and biccy.
Thanks everyone - I was concerned it may affect the results of my blood tests
Would depend on what you are having blood tests for though I would assume, e.g. it would make a difference to a test for anaemia (which I am assuming you dont have since you are able to give blood!)
