Test results

Results will be given face to face during a routine appointment or over the phone (between 9:00-17:00).

Blood results normally take 7 days to come back.

Cervical Smears – Anyone who has a smear carried out at the surgery will receive their results by letter either from the practice or the hospital. This will tell you the result and follow-up arrangements. If you have not heard after eight weeks please ring reception and we will chase the result.

Pregnancy Tests – the doctor or nurse will make arrangements with you for these results.

Other Investigations – These will be given personally, by the doctor or the nurse, at a follow-up appointment or by letter
