Test Results

If you are ringing to obtain test results we request that you call after 11.00am

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.

If a test has been requested elsewhere by another service or in hospital, this will be returned to them and you need to speak directly to that service. 

Our Care Navigators will be able to give you limited information on the instructions of a GP if they have been received and reviewed by our clinical team. 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.
