Test results are usually available 7-10 working days following submission of your sample. Since our telephones are very busy in the early morning, we ask you to telephone for test results (eg blood, urine, x-ray, swabs) between 10.30am to 12:00pm and 2.30pm and 5.00pm. The receptionist will be able to give you the result, which has been reported on by the clinician involved in your care.
Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.
When you take your test you will be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice.
It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if your are advised to do so.
