Results

Routine test results take approximately 5 working days to reach the surgery. To obtain the results of blood or urine tests you have had performed, please phone the surgery between 3-6pm Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.

You will need to call the surgery for your results as you will not be routinely informed of these.  If your result is abnormal and Doctor is concerned about it then he/she will call you to discuss your result. Please ensure that we have your correct contact details at all times

Please note that we do have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. In this respect we will only give out results to the person they relate to unless that person has given prior permission for their release by completing a Consent Form.
