How can I find my results

Results are reviewed by a doctor then made available to patients in 2 ways:

Most lab tests take 5 working days to come back to the practice. For imaging and other specialist tests, the wait can be a few weeks.

Where the test results are reassuring, your doctor will record this on your notes but will not contact you directly – it is important that you follow up on your own test results so you know that your tests have been reported and the results checked by a doctor.

What if my results are abnormal or require action?

Urgent results are followed up as soon as possible. For non-urgent results that need further action, your doctor will contact you in 5 working days.
