You can obtain results of tests arranged by the Surgery e.g. blood and urine tests, X-ray, cervical smears etc. by telephoning the receptionist. Since our telephone lines are often very busy in the morning, we would ask you to telephone for the results after 11.30 am.
Unless the doctor advises otherwise, please allow
• 7 working days for blood and urine results
• 10-15 working days for X-ray results
• 4 – 5 weeks for cervical smear results
To safeguard confidentiality we only discuss results with the patient, unless alternative arrangements have been agreed in advance.
Please ensure that we have an up-to-date phone number, especially if you work away from home or if your phone does not accept all incoming calls. Please ensure that the Surgery telephone number is listed in your “Family & Friends Group” if you have a call barring facility set up.
