Test Results

Blood and urine test results take about a week to come back from the laboratory. 

Once we receive your results, the Doctor reviews them and we will contact you if action is required.

We strongly recommend to register to the online access and be able to view your results online without calling the surgery.

Please phone the surgery after 10.30 if you are requesting results. 

Reception can look in your medical record for your results. 
If the result has come back as normal they will be able to let you know. 
However, if the Doctor or Nurse needs to see you to discuss the results of the test and any changes in treatment then reception will not be able to give you any information and will book you a telephone appointment with the Doctor or Nurse.

Please bear in mind when you are requesting your results that the receptionists are not clinicians and are not able to interpret the results for you. If you wish to discuss your results you need to make a routine telephone appointment with the Doctor.

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. You will be asked for your date of birth and address to ensure we are talking to you. 

We cannot give test results out to anyone else so please ensure you don't ask a friend or relative to call for you.
