Full Blood Count

A Full Blood Count (FBC) provides information about the different cells in the blood, these include the red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. Red blood cells contain haemoglobin which carries oxygen to tissues throughout the body whereas white blood cells contribute to the immune system and protect the body from bacteria and viruses. FBC testing is used to screen for disorders like anaemia and for infections.
