Tests and Results


How and when to obtain test results from the surgery

Getting your test results

It is really important to find out the result of any tests you have had. Please do not assume it is normal if you do not hear from us. We do contact patients if a result is dangerously abnormal but are unable due do this for every result due to lack of resources.

If you have had a blood or urine test you can phone to check the result. Please allow 4 working days for test results to be reviewed. The doctor will leave a message with your results advising if there is a change of plan needed. It is best to ring in the afternoon as the phones are less busy.

For X-ray/scan results, please allow up to three weeks; once the results are received by us, you will need to make an appointment with your doctor to be given the results. Often a telephone appointment is suitable. It is a good idea to check we have received the result before organising this, you can ask reception this at the time of booking.
