ESR and CRP Blood Tests

There are two blood tests that are commonly used in medicine to screen for or monitor inflammation within the body. Inflammation is the body's own response at a microscopic level to particular illnesses or injuries, and is part of the process of the body trying to heal itself.

If your doctor suspects you may have an infection or inflammation then they may recommend a CRP or ESR blood test. Do not worry about determining for yourself which if any blood test you need. This is something that your doctor will be able to determine and explain during your consultation.

All our blood tests are available same day with some of the fastest results in London. One of our doctors will take the time to explain to you what your test results mean and put in place any appropriate next steps based on those results.

This is only a small sample of the many blood tests which DocTap provide. Our expert doctors can advise you during your consultation on the most appropriate tests for your condition. View all blood tests.

* Please note that the lab results are estimates and can vary. Tests taken after 1pm will be classified as the following day for timing purposes. You will receive a written analysis of your results within 1 working day of them being available from the laboratory. It is often possible for the doctor who reviews your results to be the same doctor who requested them. This is considered medical best practice but will add an additional 1 working day to the timings. If you have multiple tests then we shall wait to report on them together unless the first results highlight any reason for concern. Sometimes the preliminary results will determine that additional tests need to be carried out on your sample. If this is the case then your results will take longer. There is no additional charge for this service.

Why Choose DocTap?

DocTap seek to provide the most convenient, fastest, effective and best value private blood testing service in London. With 13 blood test centres across London and same day appointments available 7 days a week, it has never been easier to book a esr or crp test. We are proud to partner with The Doctors Laboratory (TDL) which has a worldwide reputation for excellence.

Unlike many blood test clinics, you will see a UK accredited GP who will be able to offer their expert option on what test is most appropriate for you. Your results will also be accompanied by a written analysis of what they mean and what your doctor advises you to do next. Should additional treatment be required, or if you simply wish to discuss the results in more detail, then you can book a 15 minute follow up consultation for only £25. This can either be at any DocTap clinic or over the phone. When booking your follow up consultation you can request to see you original doctor if you wish (subject to their availability).

Should you require a full consulation before deciding to have a esr or crp test then there may be insufficient time to also take a blood sample in the appointment. In that case you can choose to either go to our walk in laboratory by Oxford Street (£15 phlebotomy fee applies) or to make a second appointment for the doctor to take the bloods.

What do ESR and CRP tests check for?

When an area is inflamed there is a change in the protein levels in the blood. The erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR blood tests) and the C-reactive protein (CRP) blood tests detect these chemical changes. 

What abnormalities can ESR and CRP tests detect?

In general the higher the result - the greater the degree of inflammation. The CRP blood test measures one particular protein, whereas the ESR blood test measures several proteins. The CRP tends to rise more quickly in inflammation than the ESR and also comes down more quickly after treatment. These tests cannot tell the doctor exactly where the problem is. But, used in conjunction with the clinical details and examination of a patient, they can give the doctor information about the likely cause of the problem and guide treatment. They can also help to monitor the course of the disease, and track whether a patient is responding to treatment.

The ESR and CRP can rise with any condition that causes inflammation including infections (mainly bacterial), inflammatory joint conditions (like rheumatoid arthritis and gout), inflammatory bowel conditions (like ulcerative colitis), connective tissue disorders (like lupus) and traumatic injuries or burns.
