If you are asked to have a test either at the surgery or at another clinic please remember to telephone for your results 5 - 7 days later.
Results are available after 2pm.
Please note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection, so test results will only be released to the patient, unless the patient has given prior permission for the release of this data to a third party, or if the patient themselves are not capable of understanding the results.
With regards to some test results, such as X-rays, it can take up to two weeks for the surgery to receive the results. Reception staff will be able to give you an indication approximately how long it will take for the test results to arrive.
In cases where the test has been requested by a consultant from the hospital, the results will not come to the surgery. In such cases the patient will normally be informed through a follow up appointment with the consultant.
