Most urine and blood tests are taken in the morning and the results are usually available three to five working days later, although some may take longer such as X-rays.
We realise some patients may be anxious to obtain their results however it will help other patients if you only call for results after 3pm when the telephone lines are generally less busy.
For reasons of confidentiality results can only be given to the patient or their guardian.
Receptionists are only able to pass on any comment given by your doctor; they are not medically qualified to discuss your result. Any questions should be directed to the doctors or nurses.
It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if your are advised to do so.
