Test results

If your test results are normal you may not be contacted, as ‘no news is usually good news’ as we have a proactive process in place. You can view your results online if you have online access to your medical records.  If you wish to discuss your test results please book an appointment to see the clinician who requested the test after 10 days have elapsed.  Some test results may take longer to be received. Cervical Smear results usually take 4 weeks and you can view these on your online records.

Please note that if your results are abnormal you will be contacted and prioritised according to clinical urgency.

Our reception staff are not qualified to comment on results therefore it is your responsibility to check them and make any necessary follow-up appointment with the doctor.

Please note that we do have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. In this respect we do not usually give out results by telephone and only do so when necessary to the person they relate to unless that person has given prior permission for their release or if they are not capable of understanding them.
