The laboratory of the HMC/Bronovo hospital is available for blood sample collections at Loudon Medical Centre on every working day from 08:00 to 10:30 hours. There is no need to make an appointment, but you do need to bring the laboratory form you were given.
When you need to give a blood sample, you may have to follow certain guidelines. There are some tests that require nil by mouth. This means that you must refrain from eating and drinking, except for some water, from 8 hours prior to the examination. You can take your medication with some water. Most results of the tests will be available after 2 days with the doctor's assistant or the GP.
According to the statutory identification requirements, you also need to show some form of identification at the blood collection department. You can show a valid proof of identification that states your unique citizen service number (BSN), such as a passport, A Dutch ID card, or Dutch driver's licence.
Without a valid ID with your citizen service number, the healthcare provider will not be able to charge the costs of your treatment to the health insurer. Proper identification also ensures the patient security.
