Test results will normally be available around 7-10days after you have had your test at the surgery. Some results, such as MRIs, take longer to arrive back at the practice.
You can either log in to your online account to review your results or telephone the practice. The practice will not routinely contact you about your results. It is usually easier to phone for results when the telephone lines are quieter, after 10:00am. The receptionist will be able to tell you what the doctor or nurse has commented on the result, and what you need to do next.
If you require a non-urgent appointment to see the doctor the receptionist will book you in to the next available appointment with the GP of your choice. When the doctor has commented the result is not urgent, it is appropriate to wait for a routine appointment.
If the GP has commented you need to be seen more urgently than the wait for a routine appointment, the reception staff will arrange this with you.
Please note if you had a test at the request of a consultant or other health professional not based at the practice, we will not be able to give you this result or chase it up for you. You will need to contact the consultant or health care professional who asked you to have the test.
