It is the patient’s responsibility to ring the practice for their test results. On average please allow 3-4 working days for your test results to come back from the hospital, unless your doctor has advised otherwise. Please note that X-ray results take a little longer, usually 5 days.
Sometimes, we cannot always give full results over the phone. If the result is complicated, or if the doctor wants to see you about the result, we will offer you an appointment. We will only give results to the person who has had the test or parent/guardian of children.
Please Note: Any Test Results requested by a Hospital Consultant will not be sent to your GP surgery. You would only get these results from your Consultant that you have seen and requested the tests.
