Tests and Results




If your doctor asks you to take a blood or urine test or x-ray, you should always ring for the result.

Although your doctor will normally try to contact you if the result is significantly abnormal, you should not assume that it is normal because you have not heard anything, as results can sometimes 'go astray'.

Most test results are available after a week although smear results may take longer.

Please contact the surgery for results after 3pm as the receptionists are less busy at this time.
