Test Results

Telephone Advice

The Doctor or Nurse is usually available to talk to patients just after normal surgery hours.

Test Results

Please ring for test results after 1.00 pm. Rules of confidentiality state that results can only be given to the patient to whom they relate (or a child's parent / guardian). Sometimes, we cannot always give full results over the phone. If the result is complicated, or if the doctor wants to see you about the result, we will offer you an appointment. 

On average please allow 2 – 3 working days for your test results to come back from the hospital unless your doctor has advised otherwise. Please note that X-ray results take a little longer, usually 12 – 14 days.
