Paying for own Calprotecin test.

Paying for own Calprotecin test. Anyone in the uk done this? I see its not that expensive £70.
Knowing how slow things are in the nhs I'd be interested in doing this.

At the moment, GP has just ordered the first blood tests, not told me to go back or anything, sent me a letter to do more bloods in 3-4 weeks. Nothing else.

If it was positive then I could go back for an appt. (rather than just waste their time). Wonder how they'd react though? Would they be narked that I'd done this myself or be happy that I'd saved them an appt and the test cost out of their budget?
