If you are ringing to obtain test results we request that you call between 10.00am and 1.30 pm or after 3.30pm.
As a general rule:
· Most bloods test results are available within a week
· X-Ray results are usually reported on within a week
· Cervical Smear results are posted to you directly from the Cervical Cytology Screening Department within eight weeks
Please be patient with the receptionists when you call; they are not medically qualified and can only give limited information as guided by a GP. Patients will often be asked to arrange an appointment with a GP or Nurse if an explanation of the result is needed, this does not mean there is anything seriously wrong. Alternatively the doctor may write to you about the results.
We will always contact you as soon as we receive your results if there is any urgent action needed.
