On average please allow 1 week for your blood test results to come back from the hospital unless your doctor has advised otherwise. Please note that X-ray results take a little longer, usually upto 14 days. For your test results please telephone the surgery on 01789 840245; please telephone late morning or early afternoon as the telephone lines are very busy up to 11am. Sometimes, we cannot always give full results over the 'phone. If the result is complicated, or if the doctor wants to see you about the result, we will offer you an appointment. We will only give results to the person who has had the test.
Specimens for the hospital laboratory are collected from the surgery before 12.00pm each weekday morning. If the doctor or nurse asks you to telephone the surgery for a result please ring in the afternoon.
