Test Results

Please allow 7  days for test results to come back (Smear tests usually take about 2 weeks).

Please telephone 01283 703318 after 10am to obtain details of your test results (e.g. blood, urine, x-ray), or visit the Practice.

To ensure confidentiality and security, test results will only be given to the patient direct and not to relatives or friends, unless alternative arrangements have been agreed in writing.

We will, of course, make every effort to contact you should your returned result need urgent action. However, it is your responsibility in all cases to find out the result of your test.

The doctors check the results before our reception staff are able to give any information to you.

Please do not expect our reception staff to relay any other information regarding the test results.

If the doctor needs to speak to your personally, our reception staff will suggest the best possible time to ring, so as to avoid interruptions during the surgeries, which is upsetting for both the doctors and our patients.
