Tests and Results

Please help us by ensuring any specimens you are requested to provide are given in the correct container, are labelled and accompanied by a request form and placed in the appropriate sealed plastic envelope. Failure to do so will mean the laboratory cannot process your specimen.

Test results can be given out over the phone, but please ring after 11:00 or after 15:00, when our phone lines are quieter, and we have more time to discuss the results with you.

Please allow a minimum of:

  • three days for urine results
  • two days for blood results
  • two weeks for X-rays from the date taken
  • Other results will vary but the minimum wait will be one week
