Test Results

Various tests, scans or investigations could be arranged for patients following appointments with our GPs.
Some test results can take longer than others to come back to us. For example, most blood test results will be back within 24-48 hours whereas urine sample results could take up to 5 days, and stool samples results could take up to 10 days. X-rays, CT, MRI, or Ultrasound scans can all vary depending on demand and where you are having the scan. Biopsy results can take around 10-14 days to be returned.
Please telephone reception to enquire about the results of your specific test(s) after the suggested timeframes above.
If you attend the surgery for a blood test, your results will usually be returned to us within 24-48 hours. Once received, the GPs need to review and comment on each test result.
Please telephone reception a few days after your blood test appointment to enquire about your results. It is best to telephone reception later in the morning, or during the afternoon, to avoid the busier phone lines at the start of each day. This also keeps the phone lines free for those requiring appointments.
Test results online?
Test results that have been requested by our GPs at the surgery can also be accessed via an Online Services account. If you have already signed up and are using the NHS App, Patient Access, or another Online Services provider, then you can ask a member of our team to enable access to your test results.

Please visit our Online Services page for information on how to sign up.

Having access to your test results online means that you can see your test results as soon as the GP has reviewed and filed them. It also means that you can access the results 24/7 and without having to telephone the surgery. Many patients find this a very beneficial feature.
