Test Results

When you attend for a test of any kind you will need to wait at least seven working days for the results. Some other test such as cervical smears might take longer. If your test has been requested by the hospital and you have not received the result, you will need to contact the hospital department who requested the test.

Please bear this in mind and check online after sufficient time has elapsed. If you don't hear from the surgery it means your test results were normal and they don't require any specific action.

Our reception staff are not allowed to comment on results unless authorised by a clinician. If you still want to talk with a clinician, please book a telephone appointment to discuss further. 

Make sure we have up to date contact details so we can contact you if your results need further action.

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 or if they are not capable of understanding them.
