Test Results

The surgery does not routinely contact patients to give them test results. We only contact patients where there is a need for follow-up.

If you want to access your results you can do this via your preferred online access app provider (eg Patient access app or NHS app) if you are not registered for these apps and need assistance please contact the patient service team who will be happy to point you in the right direction to register.

Please only contact the patient service team after 10am when they will have more time to deal with your request.

We will only provide test results for those tests requested in primary care. For tests requested by the hospital doctor you will need to contact the hospital directly as it is their responsibility to interpret and arrange any necessary follow-up.

Please note that we do have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. In this respect we will only give out results to the person they relate to unless that person has given prior permission for their release or if they are not capable of understanding them.

Allow five days for the results to come back to the surgery. Some test results may take longer.

We do not accept any samples from patients that have not been requested.
