Default Diagnostic workup

Is it worth always including certain tests in diagnostic workups? i am reading FA and they seem to include CBC, electrolytes etc. in many cases. is it worth doing this? If so, what is always worth including?

One more thing...are there any PE that are always worth doing regardless of the reason for attendance? I would do the focussed one first and if i had time I could move onto the general things to look out for.
