Tests and Results


How and when to obtain test results from the surgery

Getting your test results

Our Results Team, who are not clinicians, are available 10am to 2pm Monday to Friday on 01235 512288, press option 2, then option 1 'Results'.

Before they can be given to you, all test results are reviewed and actioned by your doctor, who will decide whether or not you need a further appointment to discuss them.

Please remember that it is your responsibility to call for your results. If you know what tests are being carried out please check that you are given all of your results; some tests can take longer than others to come back to us.

Results can only be issued to the patient

  • General blood tests -  4 to 7 days     
  • Urine tests - 4 days
  • Ante-natal blood tests - 10 to 14 days or speak to the midwife at your next appointment
  • Swabs - 5 to 10 days
  • Biopsies - 3 to 4 weeks
  • Radiology reports - 7 to 10 days from the date of your appointment

It may take several weeks for the results of non-routine blood tests to become available.

If your test / investigation was ordered by your hospital consultant, your results will go directly back to them. Please contact your consultant or their secretary to find out about these results.
