Please telephone after 3pm for the results of blood tests, x-rays etc.
Most blood tests are available within 48 hours after blood is taken.
Plain X-rays reports are usually available after 72 hours.
Results such as urine, stool or swab cultures are also usually available after 72 hours.
In all cases certain tests may take much longer, for example if the hospital has to send them away for processing.
Tests ordered by hospital clinics are not usually sent to us - if in doubt you should contact the hospital.
We do not usually contact patients about results: there are just too many coming into the surgery. It is your responsibility to ensure your results are satisfactory.
