If possible, test results will be discussed with you after a test has taken place. If it is not possible to discuss test results with you immediately, your clinician will explain when you will receive these results. You may need to arrange another appointment to discuss what the results mean.
Please be patient with the receptionists as they are not medically trained and can only pass on what the doctor has told them.
most blood test results are available up to 7 days;
most x-rays are available up to 10 days; and
cervical smear results are posted directly to the patient within 28 days.
If the GP wishes to discuss the results then you will be contacted by reception.
