Results are only given by the Doctors and patients are requested to phone the surgery in after 11am.
Please note that it is the responsibility of the patient to call back for their result, with the exception being urgent findings in which case the doctors will attempt to contact you.
The interpretation of test results requires training and understanding and this is a complex field.
You may see a little red ''exclamation mark'' besides a test indicating that a result is outside the normal range. This may be significant, but in many cases it is not and your doctor will know whether this is the case and if any action needs to be taken. Lab test online is a website which helps you understand lab tests.
We usually expect blood tests results to be back with us at the surgery within five working days; scan results such as ultrasounds and MRIs will take long as 2-3 weeks
Results for tests requested by hospital doctors will go back to them, please liaise with the hospital to arrange to discuss tests requests by hospital specialists. We only receive results for tests requested by our GPs.
