As our telephones are very busy in the early morning, we ask you to telephone for test results (eg blood, urine, x-ray) after 2 pm each day.
To ensure confidentiality, we only release results to the patient, unless alternative arrangements have been agreed in writing.
All results are reviewed by a doctor, if your results are normal you will not hear back from the surgery, however if your results require further discussion or investigation the surgery will contact you to arrange another test or appointment with your doctor.
The results of investigations/tests organised by a hospital department are not automatically sent to the Practice. To obtain the results of hospital tests you should contact the hospital department directly.
PLEASE ALLOW 5 WORKING DAYS FOR BLOOD AND URINE TEST RESULTS. FOR XRAYS AND ULTRASOUND SCANS PLEASE ALLOW 10 DAYS.
If you are at all concerned about your health or your results please do book a further appointment to discuss your concerns with a doctor.
