When you attend for a test of any kind you will be told how long you should expect to wait for the results to be processed and reported on. Patients are asked to contact us to obtain their results following tests/investigation requested by the practice only.
Please ensure that you contact us to obtain your results, generally we should have received these on or around to the timeframes following the test:
- Blood tests - 4 working days
- xRay/Ultrasounds - 7 working days
- MRI/CT scans - 7 - 14 working days
- Colonoscopy/Gastroscopy - 14 working days
Any test/investigations requested by your consultant need to be reported/actioned by them, not the practice, so please contact the consultant's secretary for these results, unless you have a follow up appointment booked with them at a later date.
Our reception staff are not qualified to comment on results therefore, they will only provide information given to them by the clinician who actioned the results/investigations. If you have any queries regarding these results please ask to speak to one of our clinical audit team who will liaise with the GP to ask for more information.
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 written permission to release of their medical information.
