When you attend for a test of any kind you will be told how long you should expect to wait for the results.
We do not contact every patient with the result of every test. You may call in for the result or phone but since our telephones are very busy in the early morning, we ask you to telephone for test results (eg blood, urine, X-ray) in the afternoon. We suggest leaving it about a week before asking for the result.
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.
