Results of Tests and Investigations

On average, please allow 2-3 working days for your test results to come back from the hospital unless your doctor has advised otherwise. Please note that X-ray results take a little longer, usually 5-7 days.

For your test results, including blood tests, x-rays and other investigations, please telephone the surgery after 14:00, Monday to Friday. Sometimes we cannot always give full results over the phone. If the result is complicated, or if the doctor wants to speak with you about the result, we will offer you a telephone consultation or face to face appointment.

With very limited exceptions, we will only give results to the person who has had the test. Similarly, for reasons of security and confidentiality, we are not able to email results, or discuss other medical issues online.

Please note that pregnancy test results are only given by letter to the patient, in person, and cannot be given over the telephone by the receptionists.
