When you have had tests such as blood tests, urine samples, X-Rays, cervical smears and so on, you should contact the surgery, either by telephone or by coming into the surgery and asking one of the receptionists.

Timescale for receiving test results:

  • Chest X-rays 5-7 days
  • Other X-rays 5-7 days
  • Ultrasound Scans 5-7 days
  • Pregnancy Tests 3-5 days
  • Urine Tests 3 days
  • Stool Samples 5-7 days
  • Swabs 5-7 days
  • Bloods tests (routine) 3 days
  • Smear tests 7-14 days

Please telephone for results after 11:00am. The reason for this is to keep telephone lines free first thing in the morning and in the afternoon for patients requesting appointments/visits.

It is practice policy that the result should be given to the patient only, with the exception of minors. If there is any reason that the patient is unable to request the result his/herself, written consent must be given by the patient to a named person.
