Test Results

xrayWe would ask you to take responsibility for obtaining your own blood, x-ray and test results.

As the morning hours are busy with appointment requests we would remind you to phone between 3:00pm and 6:00pm.

Blood Tests

Patients requiring blood tests should make appointments with our phlebotomist.The service is available every morning from 8.30am; bookings can be made at reception or by telephone. Unfortunately, we are not able to take blood tests in the afternoon as the specimens cannot be kept overnight without results possibly becoming inaccurate.

Blood test results usually take an average of five working days to return, some longer. If in doubt please ask. As results come back to the surgery in the early afternoon, please ring between 3:00pm and 6:00pm. That gives the doctors an opportunity to comment on them.
