    Hi there,

    We've never heard this term before, so suspect something may have become confused in the telling. As we've now spoken on the phone, the best course would seem to let the surgery explain what they want when they are taking calls again.

    all the best

    Just got through to docs, the test is called the 'credit test, (as in money says the receptionist when questioned!!)
    It is apparently the citrate whole blood- ESR, why they couldnt have explained earlier is a wonder.
    Thanks
