Please remember to check your results. We will not contact you unless there is a need for urgent action. Do not assume that if we haven't called your results are normal.
Results for tests that your GP requested are usually available after one week. Some bloods, Xrays and scans can take much longer. The clinician requesting your tests will tell you when the results will be ready. Your GP will leave comments on the results for you to read.
Please wait until after 11am if you are unable to log in to patient access to see your results. You will find this more convenient as lines are busy in the morning.
If tests are ordered by the hospital specialists (not by your GP) then the results will be given to you by the hospital. This may be by letter or at your next outpatient appointment. If you need the results sooner contact the specialist, not your GP. Only the specialist will be able to tell you what the result means for your future care planning and treatment.
