Blood tests

I am on azathioprine and get blood tested monthly - FBC, LFT, U+E. Does anyone know if inflammation testing such as CRP and ESR would be covered in these or would the doctor have to specifically request these to be covered.

I'm pretty sure they do, I've got a little book they record it all in. I'll have a look at it when I get home and let you know!
