Results can only be given to the patient (unless we have received written consent to give the result to another person).
If a sample is required by the doctor please use the container and bag provided. Make sure your name is on the container and that it reaches us before 12 noon so that it can be transported in our usual delivery van. Please allow at least five working days for the results of blood and urine tests.
For blood results, please ring in the afternoon and if we have your updated mobile phone number. You will be notified through text. It is important that you keep us informed if you change your mobile number.
Other tests and investigations, eg X-rays and cervical smears, take longer and you will be informed of the timescale at your appointment.
Please note that we are unable to give you the results of tests which were hospital-based. You would normally have to wait until you re-attend the hospital or until the hospital makes contact with you.
If you would like a copy of your referral letter please let us know.
