If the doctor or nurse has told you to telephone for the results of any tests taken, please telephone between 11:00 and 17:00, Monday to Friday only. Please allow, at least, five working days before telephoning for the results of blood tests which have been taken at the surgery.
It is important to note that results can only be given to the patient themselves and this can include patients under the age of 16 years. Therefore, our reception staff are required to ask you for particular details to ensure results are given to the correct person. In addition, you may be asked to make an appointment or speak with the doctor regarding the results of tests.
Results of cervical smears are posted to our patients as soon as they are available. This can take up to five weeks, so do not worry if you have not received your letter before this time.
If you are looking for the result of any investigation carried out at the hospital including X-ray results, please telephone. Sometimes, it can take a few weeks before we receive letters from the hospital updating us on patients’ recent visits.
