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:
|Blood test||1 week|
|Stool test||1 week|
|Urine test||5 working days|
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 16 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.
NOTE: If tests were requested by the hospital then the results of the test should come from the hospital
