Test Results

Patients can use our online querry form for their test results, allowing 5 working days from when the patient had the test done before raising a querry.  X-rays and ultrasound results can take a day or two longer.

Otherwise patients can call after 12 noon for test results to avoid busy phonelines first thing in the morning.  We would ask you to always call the practice for your test results, although if there is something seriously abnormal a clinician will contact you

Blood testsX-rays and ultrasound scans are usually performed at St John’s Therapy Centre or St George’s Hospital. The results are processed at these locations then sent back electronically to Thurleigh Road where they are assigned to the relevant doctor for review.

Please note that tests arranged by the hospital team are not automatically sent to us therefore patients need to contact the team that organised the test for the result and any follow up.

Access your results online

You can do so by accessing the NHS App on your phone or website.


Please call between 12:00 – 18:00 to enquire about your test results as our reception staff will have more time to deal with your request between these times.

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.

Blood Tests

A blood test is when a sample of blood is taken for testing in a laboratory. Blood tests have a wide range of uses and are one of the most common types of medical test. For example, a blood test can be used to:

  • assess your general state of health
  • confirm the presence of a bacterial or viral infection
  • see how well certain organs, such as the liver and kidneys, are functioning


A blood test usually involves the phlebotomist taking a blood sample from a blood vessel in your arm and the usual place for a sample is the inside of the elbow or wrist, where the veins are relatively close to the surface. Blood samples from children are most commonly taken from the back of the hand. The child’s hand will be anaesthetised (numbed) with a special cream before the sample is taken.

You can find out more about blood tests, their purpose and the way they are performed on the NHS website


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.

You can find out more about x-ray tests, how they are performed, their function and the risks by visiting the NHS website.
