Test and Results
If you have recently had test of some sort and wish to ask about a result we would ask that you contact the surgery after 2:00pm. This is because the telephones are less busy at this time and our reception team will have more time to help you with your enquiry.
Please be patient with the receptionists when you call, they are not medically qualified and can only pass on whether your doctor has said the result is normal or not.
We will often ask people to arrange a telephone consultation if we feel the result needs explaining, asking you to call does not mean there is anything seriously wrong.
We will always contact you as soon as we receive your results if there is any urgent action required.
As a general rule:
Most blood tests results are available within a week
X-Ray results are back in about two weeks
Cervical Smear Results are usually available after two weeks
