Since our telephones are very busy in the early morning, we ask you to telephone for test results (eg. blood, urine, x-ray) between 2.00pm and 6.00pm each day.
We receive the majority of test results within one week. Radiology (x-ray, ultrasound, MRI) results may take up to two weeks or more.
The receptionist may be able to give you the full result, or advise whether you need to discuss them further with a doctor or nurse.
We only receive results of the tests ordered by clinicians within the practice. You will need to contact the hospital for results of tests ordered by hospital clinicians.
Results for the screening services (cervical, bowel and breast) will be sent to you directly from the laboratory.
To ensure confidentiality, we only release results to the patient, unless alternative arrangements have been agreed in writing.
