Tests & Results

On average please allow five working days for your test results to come back from the hospital unless your doctor has advised otherwise. Please note that X-ray results take a little longer, usually ten days. For your test results please telephone the surgery. Sometimes, we cannot always give full results over the phone. If the result is complicated, or if the doctor wants to see you about the result, we will offer you an appointment. We will only give results to the person who has had the test.

We now offer an SMS messaging service, once registered you can recieve test results and appointment reminders. To register, go the Patient Access website – this service also offers you the option to order repeat medication, book and cancel appointments and allows some access to your medical records. We would encourage you to sign up for this service as it ensures that you will receive a response following any tests that you have had carried out through the practice and allows flexibility to your access to our appointments.
