Tests & Results
Click services to view more information
For the results of any tests carried out in the surgery please call the surgery and choose option 4 between 3pm and 5pm. This is a dedicated time for our reception team to discuss your result with you and arrange any further action if this is necessary. It is important to note that results can only be given to the patient themselves unless express permission has been obtained from the patient and this can include patients under the age of 16. Our reception team are required to ask you for particular details to ensure results are given to the correct person to maintain confidentiality.
Kindly allow 5 working days before phoning for blood test results. Please note that x-ray and scan results can take several weeks to be reported and the results returned to us.
Results of cervical smears are posted to our patients as soon as they are available. This can take up to five weeks, so do not worry if you have not received your letter before this time.
If you have had a test carried out at the request of a hospital clinician they will receive the result directly and usually contact you. This is most frequently by letter with a copy sent to your GP to keep them up to date. If you have not received the result of an investigation carried out in hospital, often the quickest and most efficient way to discuss this is to contact the secretary of the consultant’s team directly. If you need assistance with this, please do not hesitate to contact us.
