"excellent care except for having a simple blood..."

I was recently seeing a endocrinology specialist at the Yorkshire Clinic,Bingley as a self pay patient on 9/12/2013 and the service and care was exceptional except from needing a simple basic blood test, there was massive confusion as the nurses and receptionist didn't know what to charge, after about 40 minutes they came up with a ridiculous price of £664.03 for a simple 30 second blood test!! I have tried contacting people to confirm it was no mistake but with no response, even my own doctor was so shocked. it is such a shame that some of us that cant afford private health care are still being ripped off!? so please check the prices before you go ahead with any treatments.
