Test Results

You can request your test results by:

We have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. In this respect we will only give out results to the person they relate to unless that person has given prior permission for their release or if they are not capable of understanding them.

When you attend for a test of any kind you will be told how long you should expect to wait for the results. Please bear this in mind and only call the surgery after sufficient time has elapsed.

  • Blood results please allow 3-5 days (some results take longer to come back and results will not be given out until all tests are back in surgery)
  • Urine results please allow 5-7 days
  • X-rays please allow 7-10 days
  • Scans, MRIs, ECGs and BP recordings on average take 2-3 weeks

Our reception staff are not qualified to comment on results and are only able to tell you that the doctor has marked them as ‘OK’. If you require further information you may be asked to speak to a doctor.

It is your responsibility to contact the surgery after sufficient time and ask for your results.
