Test results

Results are normally back within a week, although x-rays can take longer. If the doctor needs to discuss your results with you, we will contact you to make an appointment. If you don’t hear from us you should assume your results are satisfactory.

However, if you are anxious and want to call, please call after 2.00pm when our reception staff will have more time to deal with your request.

We can only give test results to you or your legal guardian unless we have your written consent.

When you take your test you will be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice. It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if you are advised to do so.
