Test Results

If you have a blood test, urine test, X-ray, or any other test arranged by your doctor, please contact the surgery to find out the result.

Unfortunately, as we arrange several thousand tests each year, we are NOT able to contact you and we regard it as your responsibility to enquire.

Please call at reception or phone the surgery office (01488) 682507 (Press 2) after 2.30pm, when the office is less busy.

Some results are better discussed or need clarification and you may be asked to see the doctor. This does not imply that there is a problem.

When the test results will be available

Approximate number of working days for tests ordered at surgery:

Test Results
X-Ray 7-10 days
Urine Test 3 days
Biopsy 6-8 weeks
Smear Test 6-8 weeks

For blood tests it will depend on what the blood is being tested for, so please ask for further information when our Phlebotomist (a qualified technician to draw blood) Nikki or one of the practice nurse's takes a sample of your blood.

For investigations ordered by a hospital doctor please ask at the hospital how they intend to relay the result to you.
