You may telephone the surgery for the results of your tests or X-rays. However, we request that you make this telephone call after 2.00pm since our receptionists and the telephones are particularly busy earlier in the morning.
Some test results are available within 48 hours but others take much longer. X-ray results are normally not available for two weeks after an X-ray is taken. Smear results are posted automatically to your home.
Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.
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 your are advised to do so.
