X-Rays /Blood Results
Tests results are returned to our surgery via computer from the laboratory. The time it takes to receive results varies.
If the result is not entirely normal we will ask you to make an appointment with your doctor or speak to your Doctor on the phone. Please ring for your results after 7 days P lease do not assume that if we don’t contact you that all of your results are normal. It is always advisable to call to make sure that the doctor does not want to arrange further tests or see you again.
Please allow enough time for the result to be sent to us, as a guide:
- Routine Blood Tests – 3-5 days (some more complex tests may take longer as they may have to be sent to a different lab – your GP will advise you when they arrange the test)
- X-Rays – 2-3 weeks
- Ultrasound Scans – 2-3 weeks
- Urine tests and Swabs for infection – 5 days
- Smears – 6 weeks
