It often takes up to a week for the results of blood, urine and X-ray tests to return to the surgery. Specialised tests and smears may take much longer.
If you are asked to phone for results please do so after 2 pm and before 4.30 pm Monday to Friday.
Specimens should be handed into the surgery before 11:00 for collection and transport to the pathology laboratory.
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 permission for their release or if they are not capable of understanding them.
