Please help us by ensuring you provide any requested specimens in the correct container. Samples must be accompanied by a completed labelled and request form, and placed in the appropriate sealed plastic envelope. Failure to do so will mean the laboratory cannot process your specimen.
We can provide test results over the phone, but please ring between 11:00 and 13:00 or after 15:00. Our phone lines are less busy during these times, so we will have more time to discuss the results with you. You can also view blood test results via your online patient record, or ask to receive them by email (subject to signing a consent form at the Practice).
Please allow a minimum of:
- three days for urine results;
- two days for blood results; and
- two weeks for X-rays from the date taken.
Other results will vary but the minimum wait will be one week
