Test Results

The time taken to produce results from laboratory tests varies from hours to days, dependent on the particular test (blood, urine, stools, swab, sputum etc).

We will only write or contact you, if the result of your test is abnormal or any action is required.

However, if you are concerned about a recent test, please phone the surgery, between 14:00 and 16:00 and one of our staff will investigate the matter. Please leave sufficient time between the test and the result being available to the Practice, which can be up to two weeks.

You will understand for reasons of confidentiality we are unable to give test results over the telephone to anyone other than the patient themselves.

Regardless of your test results, if you feel your health is not improving, or indeed worsening, please make an appointment with your Doctor, so that your condition can be reviewed.
