Tests & Results
Test results are received 3-5 days after a sample being taken, though some may take longer. Please ring after 10.30 for information about test results. This ensures the surgery phone lines are free for patients requesting appointments during what is the busiest time of the day.
If you are informed that your result has been ‘filed away’ to your records this is an indication that the result is normal/unchanged and requires no further action. You will be informed by the reception if your results require further action.
Occasionally certain investigations i.e. blood or urine samples need to be repeated or additional samples requested before they can be interpreted correctly. The reception staff will also inform you if this is the case.
Please be aware that our reception staff are not medically trained and as such are not able to provide in depth analysis or explanation of your results. If this is required please book a follow up telephone or surgery appointment with a doctor or nurse.
