When you attend for a test of any kind you will be told how long you should expect to wait for the results. If a follow-up or treatment needs to be arrange, someone will contact you. We generally advise that if you do not hear from us, your results are normal.
Our Receptionist staff are not qualified to give you any clinical information and are no longer able to give out test results, we recommend that you use our Online Services to access your test results.
If the test was arranged by your hospital consultant
If your test has been carried out at a Clinic or Hospital please call the Clinic or Hospital for the result, as we cannot action tests which have been requested by other Clinicians outwith the practice. If the consultant’s secretary or colleague inform you they will send the results to your GP, explain that you want the results from the specialist who arranged them who is in by far the best place to give appropriate advice.
