The length of time for the surgery to receive your test results is dependent on what test you have. Most test results are available within a week. You can telephone the practice for your results, although you would normally be contacted if there is any follow up action needed.
You can telephone or call into the surgery for your test results after 1.30 p.m. Monday – Friday only. If possible, please avoid telephoning for blood results on Mondays, as the phone lines can be extremely busy. You will be asked to call back if you contact the surgery for your test results outside of these times.
You can also request access to your test results online using online services. You need to be signed up for this service – ask at our Reception desk for information
Please note, the reception staff are not clinicians. They are unable to advise you on what your test results mean. They can only pass on the doctor’s comments.
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.
