Blood Tests


A low red blood cell count (anaemia) can affect the amount of oxygen reaching the balance part of the brain even when the blood pressure is normal. A low blood sugar level (hypoglycaemia) may also cause dizziness. Patients complaining of lightheadedness, a faint sensation or imbalance should therefore have a blood test to exclude anaemia.


A blood sample is taken by the ENT Practice Nurse after the application of a rubber tourniquet to the upper arm. The samples are sent directly to the TDL laboratories for immediate analysis.

Self-pay and insured patients are welcome

The Harley Street ENT Clinic has agreed contractual rates with most health insurance companies such as United Healthcare Global, Aviva, Allianz Worldwide Care, Bupa, CIGNA, Simplyhealth, Standard Life (PruHealth), Aetna International and WPA amongst others.

We also deal directly with the insurance companies saving you the trouble of paying first and then reclaiming.

Patients funding their own treatment will be provided with consultation fees and the potential cost of onward treatment at the time of booking their appointment.
