Test Results

Please phone the surgery for your results after 16:30 when our lines are less busy.

The clinical staff personally check all results and in many cases these can be given to you by one of our administrative staff. When the results do require discussion you will be advised to make an appointment. Depending on what tests you have had, the results may take different amounts of time to come back to us. Please ask when you have your test done.

Please ensure that your test results have been received before coming in for a follow-up appointment. You will be advised of the usual length of time before we can expect results.

Please understand that we are bound to maintain patient confidentiality and therefore results will only be disclosed to the patient (not their spouse/partner) or to the parents of minors, i.e. under the age of 16 unless alternative arrangements have been agreed in writing.


Please help us by ensuring any specimens you are requested to provide are given in the correct container and are labelled. Failure to do so will mean the laboratory cannot process your specimen. Specimens must be brought in before 13:00.
