Test results (including blood and urine) generally take between 3 to 7 working days to come back from the laboratory. The GP or nurse taking the sample will advise you when to ring for your result. X-ray results take 2 to 3 weeks to be processed.
To obtain your results please ring the surgery in the afternoon once the results have been received from the pathology department.
All results are reviewed by your GP who will advise reception on any action that may need to be taken (e.g. make an appointment to see the GP, telephone the GP or have test retaken etc.) Reception will only give you a result that the GP has commented on. If the GP has not seen the result you will be advised to ring back.
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.
