It’s important to know your blood type.
Knowing which of the four blood groups you are in is important in certain professions, when travelling and if you ever require a blood transfusion. A simple test will help to identify your blood type.
There are four basic groups of blood types - A, B, AB and O. Each of these will be either positive or negative.
If you require a blood transfusion your clinicians will need to know which of these groups you are. Having that information is useful for travellers and some professionals.
We pride ourselves on our clinical excellence, you'll be looked after by an experienced multi-disciplinary care team.
Spire Leeds Hospital in Roundhay, Yorkshire, offers a wide range of private blood tests and investigations including blood type or blood group tests. Speak to your GP if you would like a private blood type or blood group test and ask for a referral to Spire Leeds Hospital.

A nurse will take a sample of blood from a vein in your arm.
The process will only take a minute or two and you'll be able to leave immediately. Some people do faint or feel as though they might faint during or straight after the test. If that affects you, our caring and dedicated staff will ensure you are alright before you leave.
The test results will be sent to your Spire consultant or NHS GP or consultant.
