Sometimes your doctor needs to take a sample of blood or urine either to discover what is wrong with you or to measure something in your blood so that the right medication is given to you. These tests could be anything from blood sugar to a full blood count or a sample of tissue to test for cancer.
While urine can generally be tested in the surgery, blood and other specimens are usually sent away for testing at a laboratory. Most results come back within 48 hours unless a very rare test is needed which has to go to a specialist lab further away when it might take a little longer.
In most instances, normal results are not reported back to you unless you have been told otherwise by your doctor. You can ring the practice nurse for results, but please allow at least 48 hours after completion of the laboratory tests before doing so.
IMPORTANT: If your results are normal, you will not be contacted- however we will phone you or send you a letter if your results come back abnormal. Lab results are now accessible via our patient portal.
