After your Doctor orders investigations, like blood tests, X-rays and ECG you will be informed of the result of the test. Blood tests can reveal valuable information about the cause of a disease and are also valuable in monitoring the effects of treatment.
How can you get your test results?
We understand that it is important to you to find out the result of a recent test as quickly as possible.
As soon as the test result arrives at the Surgery (usually electronically) your Doctor will view and assess the result.
Often when the result is normal your Doctor will not contact you. However, if the test result is abnormal or if further tests are required, one of our team will contact you by phone if possible or send you a letter, inviting you to make an appointment with the Doctor who requested the test.
You are welcome to call us to find out the result of your test. If you are phoning for a test result, please note our results line is open from 9am and 12pm Monday to Friday. To see our full practice opening times Click here for more information
To ensure confidentiality, we can only release test results of people aged 16 and over to the person named on the result form, unless alternative arrangements have been agreed beforehand.
You may be asked for certain information to confirm your identity. Sometimes our staff may not be able to give you the result and you may be told that you need to speak to your Doctor or make an appointment to see your Doctor.
