Blood test results take between a few hours and a few days (sometimes even longer) to come back.
X-ray results can take a week at most. Your Doctor may wish to see you once the results are back, or may alternatively ask you to phone up for the results. It is important that you are able to prove your identity when phoning.
For tests of a very confidential nature (Hepatitis B, HIV etc.) we will not discuss results over the telephone at all. For such results you must make an appointment to see the Doctor once you know that the results are back.
Please bear in mind that the results or investigations requested by a hospital specialist may not be automatically passed to us. You may need to contact the specialist direct.
Please can we ask that you telephone for results after 1400.
