If you have had a blood, urine or x-ray test it is important to check with us for the result. Please telephone after 14:00 when the results line will be available to deal with such enquiries. The doctors check the results before the receptionists are able to give any information. If the outcome of the test result needs a prescpription, telephone conversation, or an appointment with the doctor, the surgery will get in touch with you by phone or letter.
The results of cervical smear tests can take two to three weeks to come through.
Most blood test results reach the surgery after 48 hours, but some tests take up to 7 days.
X-ray reports take a minimum of 10 days to arrive.
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.
