When you attend for a test of any kind you will be advised how long you should expect to wait for the results.
The tests you have been asked to have will be processed at the Hospital Laboratory. This will take a few days, they will then be returned to your Surgery for comment by the Doctor. The results should be ready for you within 5 working days after you have had your tests, some results however can take up to 2 weeks to be reported. Please bear this in mind and only call the surgery after sufficient time has elapsed.
On-line Access to view your results
If you are registered for on-line services you can view the results of your tests once the responsible clinician has filed them into your electronic medical record. We strongly recommend that you register for on-line services as this allows you to check your results even when the surgery is closed.
If you still need to telephone the Surgery regarding your results please call between 2.00pm and 5.00pm Monday to Friday. A Doctor or Nurse will either call you directly or leave a message regarding your results, which will be given to you by the Receptionists.
Please note that we 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.
