what are the implications of having anaemia? Also, if a doctor told you he wanted an all round blood test to check everything and first thing to 'rule out' anaemia, does that mean he hopes it's anaemia because it's easy to treat and could be something worse? or am i looking into it too much??

When a doctor says they want to "rule out _____", it means that they want to make sure that it's not what they think it will be. So your doctor just wants to make sure that whatever you have, it's not anaemia. Anaemia is easily treatable, but depending on whether it's own thing or a symptom of something else. :>

Anaemia is a fairly common problem that's easy to treat, it means that you'll feel fatigued and won't have as much energy as usual. They'll tell you to introduce more iron into your diet - red meat, leafy greens, beans etc - and prescribed you iron tablets, although you can easily get these from places like Holland and Barrett.
