Most hospital tests take about 7 days to come back to the surgery. X-Rays often take 10 to 14 days. You can phone for test results in the afternoon between 14:00 and 17:00.
Our reception staff are not qualified to comment on results therefore it is your responsibility to check them and make any necessary follow-up appointment with the doctor. Our receptionist will confirm your name, date of birth and address before advising what action has to be taken with your results. Please ensure we have your correct address and telephone number in case we need to contact you about any results.
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.
