Test Results

Important: Advice to Patients

Please do not leave a sample at the surgery unless you have been asked to do so by one of our clinicians.

When to return your sample to the surgery

If one of our clinicians has asked you to provide a sample please return it to the surgery before 12pm so that it can be collected that day by the specialist courier. Most samples will not keep overnight and the test will have to be repeated.

How to return your sample to the surgery

Containers can be obtained from reception. Please do not use any other kind of container to keep your sample.

Containers must be labelled with your name, date of birth and date and time of the specimen. Most results are returned electronically throughout the day. 

When to contact the surgery

Please telephone between 14:00 and 16:00 for results of investigations.

We will only contact you about your test results if there is any follow up action necessary.
