FAQs

Results

We believe that patients share responsibility for ensuring they carry out tests requested and following up on the results of any tests performed.

By phone

Generally, most results will not be given out over the phone as our reception team are not trained to interpret results. Please talk to reception if this causes any concerns.

Third parties

We will not give out test results to any third party for privacy reasons.

Appointments

We will prompt you, at the time of the investigation or referral, to make further appointments to discuss results as appropriate. You may also be contacted by the practice and asked to make an appointment with your GP to discuss your results.

How long will my results take?

The time to get your results depends on the type of test: blood results often take 3-5 days; some scans can be provided electronically on the day of the test, while others will take significantly longer. Rest assured you will be notified as soon as possible for seriously abnormal or urgent results.
