In the UK you can now get the blood samples taken at local pharmacies as well as doctors' surgeries and hospitals.I was wondering if I can use "laboratory" for the place that people need to go for blood test?
I mean the place that some doctors take your blood using a syringe then run some tests and identify the problems/disease one might have.
What happens in Iran, arian? Do you go to your doctor's surgery or directly to a lab?
Why not? That's what we call a lab over here in Italy.I call the place where I go to have blood taken a 'lab'. It is staffed by phlebotomists.
No other work is done there.
But reading some of the above comments, I now realize that it is not a lab.
What should I call it? It is not a doctor's office, nor a hospital, nor a clinic.
