Blood and Urine Tests
Blood tests are done at the surgery. Please ask reception for an appointment with any of our nurses. All blood tests have to be done before 1.30pm.
Following any test it is your responsibility to call us for the results. Please call 3 days after a urine test, 1 week after a blood test, and 1 week after any swab, for the results.
Xrays and scans can take 2 weeks to be reported.
Please allow up to 4 weeks for results of smear tests.
The receptionists are allowed to give results over the phone unless a doctor has asked to speak to you or wants to see you.
If you have heart disease, high blood pressure or diabetes then it is very important you are reviewed twice a year by a nurse or doctor, even if you are told your results are normal.
