Test Results

If you are asked to attend for an x-ray or blood test it is in your best interest to do so as they assist the clinician to make a rapid and accurate diagnosis.  

Please call between 13:00 and 14:00 to enquire about your test results as our reception staff will have more time to deal with your request between these times.

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.

As a general rule: bloodpic
  • Most bloods test results are available within a week
  • X-Ray results are usually reported on within a week.
  • Cervical Smear results are posted to you directly from the COM within eight weeks.
Please be patient with the receptionists when you call; they are not medically qualified and can only give limited information as guided by a GP. Patients will often be asked to arrange an appointment with a GP or Nurse if an explanation of the result is needed, this does not mean there is anything seriously wrong. Alternatively the doctor may write to you about the results.

We will always contact you as soon as we receive your results if there is any urgent action needed.
