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.

For abnormal results the practice nurse or Doctor will attempt to contact you - a current cell phone number is preferable.

We do not notify you if your results are normal.

Using the Patient Portal is an ideal way to view your recent lab results, but they will not be displayed in the Portal until they are back from the laboratory and viewed/actioned by the Doctor/Nurse. This can take up to 5 to 10 days depending on the test ordered.

Results are only given to the adult patient they pertain to unless there is prior arrangement for someone else to phone.
