Your sample will be sent off to the lab and once it has been processed the result will be sent back to the practice by computer. When the results come back to the practice they will be reviewed by a doctor, usually after afternoon surgeries and visits have been done. The doctor will then decide if any action is necessary.
It is important that you wait at least five working days. Test results can be viewed at the NHS App (or website), Patient Access App (or website) or other provider. Please contact the practice after 11am on the day for any test results.
If you do not have access to the internet then after five days please call us or complete an admin PATCHS form.
Enquiries about tests ordered by the hospital should be directed to the hospital and not the practice. In order to maintain confidentiality test results will only be given to the patient or to parents/guardians of minors if appropriate.
