If possible please ring between 10.00-12.00 and 14:00-18.00 for test results, this ensures that our phone lines are available for urgent appointments at the busiest times.
Your results cannot be given to another person due to confidentiality reasons, unless you have already requested this and it is recorded in your notes. 01606 544241.
Most tests take approximately 2 working days to return, with specialised tests taking longer. X-ray and scan results are usually received by the practice 7-10 days after the test was performed. It is your responsibility to telephone for results, as we process large numbers of tests each day and are unable to telephone individual results.
If you have patient access online and have elected to view your medical records then you can look at your test results online. Please make sure you have read the Guide to Patient Access as results are reported centrally and may show ‘abnormal’ however we will always contact you directly if there is any action as the GPs review all results when they come into practice.
