Lab Results

Sometimes your doctor needs to take a sample of blood or urine either to discover what is wrong with you or to measure something in your blood so that the right medication is given to you. These tests could be anything from blood sugar to a full blood count or a sample of tissue to test for cancer.

While urine can generally be tested in the surgery, blood and other specimens are usually sent away for testing at a laboratory. Most results come back within 48 hours unless a very rare test is needed which has to go to a specialist lab further away when it might take a little longer.

If test results indicate that some action is required, the practice will contact you.

If you do not hear from us you may assume that the test result has given no cause for concern. 

However, if you would like to access the result, please call the practice two weeks after your tests.  Some results may not be available for up to two weeks.

Please note:  your test results automatically go to Testsafe for storage and access by health professionals.  If you do not wish your tests to be stored there, please let the laboratory know at your next visit and tick the opt out clause on the test form.
