Blood test

Test results


We encourage all patients to make a mutually agreed plan with the doctor or nurse about how you are going to get the results of your tests. The options include:

  1. You calling our reception team for your results (usually after 5-7 days). They will either be conveyed to you by reception or they may ask your usual GP to call you back within 48 hours. 
  2. The GP who requested your investigations may call you directly 
  3. Consenting to SMS (text) notification of results from your GP/reception team.

Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.

If your test has been arranged through a hospital clinic you will need to go back to the hospital team who referred you to chase these results up.
