In order to reduce demands on the phone system, results, once reviewed by the doctor, are available from 11:00 to 17:00 daily.
You should check in advance with your doctor when to check for results but in general blood results can take up to 1 week and X-ray results can take up to 2 weeks. You can choose to receive a text message alert if your results are normal, please agree this with your GP in advance and ensure we have a mobile number for you. Any results for tests requested in hospital will be made available to you by the hospital.
Please note that we do have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. In this respect we will only give out results to the person they relate to unless that person has given prior permission for their release or if they are not capable of understanding them.
