Working together for excellent healthcare
When should I call the surgery?
Please call the surgery after 11am for results. Some results are available within 24 hours, and most will be back within seven days after the test (certain blood tests will take longer).
The doctors review the tests and comment on the results. In some cases you may be asked to make an appointment to discuss the results with the doctor. The confidential nature of tests means that we can only give results to the patient (unless consent is given to provide results to another person and this is clearly documented in the medical notes).
What other results can I contact the surgery for?
Reporting of X-Rays usually takes ten days after which you should call the surgery for the results. Other tests may take longer than this and the reception will advise you on how long you can expect to wait for the results of your investigation.
