Test results

Getting your test results

Please leave at least one week from when the blood or urine sample was taken to allow the results to reach the practice. Swabs, X-ray and ultrasound results may take up to two weeks. Smear results take up to 8 weeks and results are sent to you by the hospital.

Our reception staff are not qualified to comment on results therefore it is your responsibility to check them and make any necessary follow-up appointment with the doctor.

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.

Once a doctor has reviewed your test results, you can view them:

  • in your NHS account (through the NHS website or NHS App)
  • in your Patient Access account
  • phone us on 01233 624642 (option 2) between 9:30am to 12:30pm and 4:30pm to 5pm Monday to Friday or visit us and we will tell you what the results are
