The Doctors Drury
Primary Healthcare Service
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.
Patients are asked to contact one of our practice nurses to find out their results. Ph (09) 294 8630 option 1.
The nurses may be able to give you your test results over the phone or they may ask you to come into the practice in person to discuss the results with your doctor.
We advise that it is the practice policy for nurses to only ring and advise significant abnormal results and results that require a change in health management.
