Test Results

Results Of Tests And Investigations

An important principle in the NHS is that a result of a test goes back to the requesting clinician.

Tests requested by a hospital doctor will go back to the hospital to review and the surgery is unlikely to know the result before you do. 

Tests requested by the GPs at the surgery come back to the requesting GP or your Registered GP.

You can get your test results online without having to contact the surgery. You can log-into your NHS App to get your test results. If you haven't registered yet, you can use the link below to download the NHS App.

Please note that we do have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. This means we can only give out results to the person they relate to unless that person has given prior written permission for their release or if they are not capable of understanding them.

How long does it take to get my test results?

When you attend a test of any kind, you will be told how long you should expect to wait for the results. Blood test results usually take five working days to get back and be checked by your GP. If there is anything that needs discussing further, your GP will call you as soon as they get the results back. If there are no problems with the results, then you will not be contacted.

The practice has a “No News is Good News” policy on results. For those patients who need further investigations or a follow-up appointment, you will be contacted by phone, text or email. If we are unable to reach you then a letter will be sent.
