Results

It is important that you follow up and find out the results of your blood tests.  You may have been asked to make a follow up appointment to discuss your blood tests.  If you are phoning for results please allow about 1 week before calling the surgery (your GP will inform you if the test may take longer to come back)

  • Normal results: the receptionists may be able to tell you over the phone if all the tests were normal
  • Abnormal results: the GPs review all the results and will contact you if there is anything that needs to be discussed urgently.  If not, they may contact you by text, phone or letter or wait for you to phone in.  Ideally you should speak with the GP who ordered the results, who has assessed you and understands your case- if the GP concerned is not working on the day you phone in, this may mean arranging with reception a call back from that GP when they are next in. When the GP gives you the blood form please check what days they are at work and, therefore, available to discuss results.
