When you attend for a test of any kind you will be told how long you should expect to wait for the results. This is usually between 1 and 3 weeks but may be longer for certain tests. Xray type tests usually take at least 3 weeks for an expert opinion to reach the practice.
Please bear this in mind and call the surgery in the afternoon once sufficient time has elapsed.
Our reception staff are not qualified to comment on results, and will just relay the message that they doctor has recorded. It is your responsibility to check that you have received the results of all tests that you have had, 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 will only give out results 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.
