For results of any tests requested by your doctor, please call the Surgery after 14:00.
The doctor reviews all test results and will make a comment on your medical records as to whether your result is normal or abnormal. The receptionist will be able to give you this information when you enquire and will advise if any action is recommended by the doctor.
Please note it is your responsibility to contact the Surgery for your results as it is not possible to contact every patient individually.
Please be aware that our receptionists are unable to interpret results for you.
Results are usually back in the following times:
- Most blood tests within a week
- Some specialised blood tests up to 3 weeks
- Urine and stool tests 3-5days
- X-Rays up to 10 days
Please note that we do have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. In this respect we will only give out results to the person they relate to unless that person has given prior permission for their release or if they are not capable of understanding them.
