When you attend for a test of any kind you will be told how long you should expect to wait for the results. Please bear this in mind and call the surgery between 09:00 - 17:00 once sufficient time has elapsed.
As a rough guide, routine blood test results take 48-72 hours for us to receive them and routine xray results take 7 days for us to receive.
Our reception staff are not qualified to comment on or discuss results themselves, although the doctors will have seen the results and left appropriate messages for patients. This may include advice such as making a follow-up appointment with the doctor.
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.
