Please allow 14 days for your results to be fully processed.
Processing times differ according to what type of test you have had. All test results are viewed by your doctor and we will contact you if we need to pass on any messages. We will not contact you if your results are normal. For more information, see Patient Information: Test results.You can contact the surgery after 15:00 to check your test results. Our reception staff will only discuss these with the patient concerned.
