Private Smear and phlebotomy (blood taking) tests

Dr Hodson undertakes private smear tests and blood taking when needed. This facility does not prevent the usual NHS smear taking place when it becomes due, but is a service available for those who may prefer to have smears more frequently than offered. For further information please click on the links below or leave contact details for Dr Hodson’s attention at the surgery and she will contact you to discuss this.
