Getting your test results

Please ring after 14:00 for test results.

Your results cannot be given to another person due to confidentiality reasons, unless you have already requested this and it is recorded in your notes.

Most tests take a minimum of approximately 2 working days to return, with specialised tests taking longer. X-ray and scan results are usually received by the practice at least 7-10 days after the test was performed. As we process large numbers of tests each day – we are unable to telephone individual results. It is your responsibility to telephone for results,

The doctor will leave a brief message with your test result such as “normal”, “repeat in six months”, “see the doctor” etc. which the Receptionist will convey to you when you telephone. In the interests of safety and confidentiality the Receptionist does not have access to more detailed or technical interpretation of your tests.
