When a doctor or nurse arranges for a test to be taken the patient
will be informed how to obtain the result.
The type of test done will dictate how long your result takes to come back to us. The person who takes the test can normally advise you how long your test result will take to come back.
Please note that we will only contact you to tell you about your test results for one of the following reasons:
If your test result is normal – we will not contact you – this is because we undertake hundreds of tests each week.
You can telephone us if you want to speak to us about your test result, however it is best not to try and do this first thing in the morning as the telephone lines are always very busy with appointment bookings at this time of day.
