Blood test and urine results usually take at least two to three working days to come back from the laboratory. The doctor requesting the test will review the results and give our receptionists instructions, for example, if a follow up appointment is needed. Our reception team is authorised to communicate these results to you.
If you attend for hospital tests (Ultrasound, MRI, X Ray, and Echocardiogram) these tests can take up to 3 weeks for the results to be sent to the surgery.
Please note that we do have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. In this respect we will only give out results to the person they relate to unless that person has given prior permission for their release or if they are not capable of understanding them.
