Please telephone the surgery on (0118) 972 2188 after 5 working days for your test results to come back from the hospital, unless your doctor has stated otherwise.  If you can, please phone outside our core hours, ideally between 10.30am - 1.00pm and 2.00pm - 5.30pm.

The average wait times for test results:

However, do be aware that we cannot always give full results over the phone.  Our preference is to give results over the telephone for confidentiality reasons and we can only give results to the person who has had the test. We cannot give your results to family members without your written consent.  Results for patients under the age of 18 will be given to their parents, unless we receive instruction not to.  If the result is complicated, or if the doctor wants to see you about the result, we will offer you an appointment.
