Oh no, they wouldnt do that. If you wanted that sort of thing you'd probably only go to the practise nurse.
The amount of stress and hassle with booking appointments makes it not worth it...they would do height and weight, maybe reflex and chest...they wouldnt monitor your heart unless they feared something was wrong, similarly they wouldnt do blood pressure and they certainly wont do blood tests without specifically looking for something.
they wouldnt tell me what blood type I was, and they wouldnt do any further tests about finding how bad my peanut allergy was...and thats when I specifically asked them
