It often takes up to a week for the results of blood, urine and X-ray tests to return to the surgery. Specialised tests and smears may take much longer.
Please call us for your test results, after 14:00, Monday to Friday.
Specimens should be handed into the surgery before 13:00 for collection and transport to the pathology laboratory. Specimens which are not provided in the correct container will not be accepted. Please ask your clinician or the receptionist for the correct container.
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.
