If you have been sent for a test the results will be reviewed by a doctor.
When you are sent for a test (blood, X-ray, ultrasound etc) the doctor may arrange another appointment for them to see you once the results are back.
Alternatively, when the result comes back, the doctor may then request for you to be contacted for an appointment to be made to review your results. If the result is satisfactory and you are no longer unwell, the doctor may feel that they do not need to see you again. Obviously if the problem persists you will need to make another appointment to see the doctor.
Results of tests are available through our Enquiry telephone line. As this line is very busy in the early morning we request that you phone for results between 11:00 - 13:00 and 14:00 - 16:00. Please telephone 01249 462775
Blood tests, urine and swabs take at least 5 days, X-rays and Ultrasounds 14 days.
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 permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.
Note: You will have to wait up to 1 week for any routine test results.
