Sunday to Thursday 7.00am - 9.00am
Laboratory investigations are only conducted in the morning because certain tests require the patient to be fasting. The blood samples are sent on a daily basis to Hamad Medical Centre (HMC) for analysis.
Blood grouping is conducted daily and the blood group certificate will be issued on the same day (between 7.00am and 3.00pm). The name on the certificate must be the same as that on the passport.
All laboratory reports are collected from HMC laboratory. Most reports return within 3-5 days.
Certain results e.g. hormone profiles take longer up to 2 weeks.
Do not forget to bring your Hamad Medical Card with you, as it is required for blood test (make sure it's valid).
You can call the reception to see if your report has been returned, however results will only be given by a doctor to the person concerned. All personal reports are confidential.
After they have been scanned into the patient's file, they can be collected from reception, if desired.
