Test Results

Results of investigations such as blood tests, scans and X-rays may be obtained in person, or by telephoning the receptionists between 1.00pm and 3.00pm.

General Information about Test Results

It normally takes 7 to 10 days for the results of blood tests, urine tests, xrays examinations and other investigations to become available. Some tests take even longer to process (i.e. cervical smears), the Practice Nurses will be able to advise you about this.

In the majority of cases the results will be within Normal or expected limits and in these circumstances your Doctor may ask the Receptionist to inform you that the result in normal when you enquire. Should the Doctor need to see you the Receptionist will book an appointment in accordance with the Doctors instructions. Usually the first available routine appointment is offered but in cases of urgency a same day or next day appointment is arranged. For a variety of reasons a test may need to be repeated or medication may be prescribed and often the Practice Nurse will speak to you about this.

Confidentiality

For confidentiality reasons the Receptionists can only give results to the patient in question.
