Test Results

Your blood/smear/swab/urine sample will be collected from the surgery at around 14:00 today and will be taken to our local lab at Princess Royal hospital.

The result will be sent to us electronically as soon as the sample is processed.

The electronic results will be reviewed by a doctor and filed.

The system will automatically generate an E-mail/Text alert to inform you the result is back and has been processed.

You may get MORE THAN ONE alert if the result has been split into sections.

Sometimes you may get several texts or e-mails (sorry no way to stop this)

If ANY of the alerts ask you to contact the surgery please do, call or come into the surgery after 1.30 pm.

You should be able to review your results via the patient access app or website if you are registered for this service. The service is free and can be arranged via reception.

The practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. We will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of the results or they are not capable of understanding the results.
