Test results (including blood and urine) generally take between 3 to 7 working days to come back from the laboratory. The clinician taking the sample will advise you when to ring for your result.
If a result is abnormal you may get a phone call from the out of hours service should the surgery be shut when the result becomes available. Please make sure your contact details are correct and inform us asap if any details change.
X-ray results take 2 to 3 weeks to be processed.
To obtain test results, please telephone 01386 552424 between 11:00-18:00 Monday to Friday.
All results are reviewed by your GP who will advise reception on any action that may need to be taken, (e.g. make an appointment to see the GP, telephone the GP or have test retaken, etc). Reception will only give you a result that the GP has commented on. If the GP has not seen the result you will be advised to ring back.
IMPORTANT For reasons of confidentiality, results can only be given to the patient themselves or their legal carer.
