Tests & Results
All specimens you have been asked to bring in for processing at the hospital laboratory are collected from the Practice daily, Monday to Friday. Please ensure that specimens for testing are handed into reception before 12 noon and the container is clearly marked with the patients’ name and date of birth.
Please call after 3:00pm to enquire about your test results as our reception staff will have more time to deal with your request at this time.
Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.
When you take your test you will be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice.
It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if your are advised to do so.
For routine and urgent blood, pre-bookable appointments are available via reception or a drop-in service will run Monday – Friday 1pm – 4.30pm.
An X-ray is a widely used diagnostic test to examine the inside of the body. X-rays are a very effective way of detecting problems with bones, such as fractures. They can also often identify problems with soft tissue, such as pneumonia or breast cancer.
If you have a X-ray, you will be asked to lie on a table or stand against a surface so that the part of your body being X-rayed is between the X-ray tube and the photographic plate.
An X-ray is usually carried out by a radiographer, a healthcare professional who specialises in using imaging technology, such as X-rays and ultrasound scanners.
X-rays usually take around 7 to 10 working days for the results to be sent to your surgery.
You can find out more about x-ray tests, how they are performed, their function and the risks by visiting the NHS Choices website.
