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.

  • All incoming results are checked by the Doctor and we will contact you if further action is necessary - either by telephone, if urgent, or otherwise by letter
  • It is not our routine to contact a patient if the results are Normal, with the exception of Cervical Smear results for which we will always send you a letter
  • If you need to telephone our Nurses regarding your results - please phone after 10 am.
