Test Results

Most routine blood test results are back within one week. It is your responsibility to find out the results of your blood tests from the practice.

If you are having blood tests because you are unwell you will usually be asked to make a routine follow up appointment so that the doctor can check on your progress. For routine blood tests that monitor long term illnesses you may be able to ring reception whom will be able to tell you if the result is back and what the doctor has said about the result. Reception can then advise you if the result is normal or if you need to have an appointment with the doctor.

Urine results are back usually within two or three working days. Please ring reception whom will be able to tell you if the result is back and what the doctor has said about the result.
