Doctors, nurses or midwives ordering blood tests or other investigations will discuss with you how to get the results. If you need to telephone for results, please do so between 2:00pm and 5:00pm. Please note that you can access test results via Online Services.
- Most blood test results are available within 7 - 14 days.
- Urine and pregnancy tests within a week.
- Smear tests take up to 2 months.
Before leaving the surgery you should expect to have a clear understanding of when and how test results will be made known to you. We would attempt to contact you about seriously abnormal results, but you should always check with us on the result of a test.
Please note we are only able to give test results to the patient themselves (over the age of 16 years) unless we have written consent given permission to pass the information to another named person. Forms are available at reception.
