Test Results

Test Results

Having seen one of our clinicians for a blood or other test, the samples are sent to the laboratories for analysis.  The results of your test sample are then reported back to the Practice for the necessary clinician to review.

It is the patient's responsibility to check their results and to make any required follow-up appointments.  When you telephone for your results, please do so between 14.00 and 17.30, when a member of staff will provide you, if available, with your result and advise you of any further action you may need to take.  Our reception staff are not qualified to comment on results that have not been considered by our clinical team.

Please allow 48 hours before phoning for a routine blood or urine result.  Warfarin patients are requested to phone 24 hours after their INR blood test for their result.  X-Ray and scan results can take approximately 10-14 days to be reported back, please allow this period of time to pass before phoning for your result.

You can find out more information regarding blood tests and x-ray tests, their purpose and the way they are carried out by visiting the NHS Inform Website.

Please also note that, adhering to our policy regarding Data Protection and Patient Confidentiality, we will only give out test results to the person they relate to, unless we have prior consent for their release to another, or if that person is not capable of understanding the result.
