Test Results

Test Results

Results of blood tests, x-ray results and correspondence are received late morning. These will then be passed to the GP for review, therefore, we would appreciate it if you would telephone (01953) 717204 for these results in the afternoon after 2.00 pm.

Your doctor will advise you when to telephone for these.  Blood test results are usually back within three days, however some may take longer. X-ray and scan results will take longer.  If you wish to see your GP to discuss your results please ensure that these have been received by the surgery before you book your appointment.

Cervical smear results take approximately 2-3 weeks to come back. The Health Authority will inform you of the cervical smear result by letter.

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 written, signed, permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.
