On average please allow at least 5 to 7 working days for your test results to come back from the hospital unless your doctor has advised otherwise.
Please note that Vitamin D & X-ray results take a little longer, usually 7 to 10 days.
Smear test results takes about 4 to 8 weeks to come back to the surgery.
For your test results please telephone the surgery on 020 8422 1813 after 10:30 am to avoid busy hours. Sometimes, we cannot always give full results over the phone. If the result is complicated, or if the doctor wants to see you about the result, we will offer you an appointment.
We will only give results to the person who has had the test. If the patient is under the age of 16 years, we will give the results to the parents or a next of kin.
The results of any test performed by a hospital doctor are given direct to the patient at their follow-up appointment and are not sent to the surgery in advance.
* NOTE: 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 written permission for the release of this data OR they are not capable to understand the results.
It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if you are advised to do so.
