Thyroid test

Spire Hartswood Hospital in Brentwood, Essex, offers a wide range of private blood tests and investigations including thyroid tests. Speak to your GP if you would like a private thyroid test and ask for a referral to Spire Hartswood Hospital. Alternatively please contact us for more information about thyroid testing.

Thyroid blood tests to test thyroid function are commonly performed as an under active thyroid (hypothyroidism) can cause common symptoms such as tiredness, weight gain and constipation.

These tests are also used to monitor the effect of treatment of thyroid disorders.

Thyroid tests are conducted by taking a small blood sample for analysis in our laboratories.
