You can get your test results online without visiting or contacting the surgery.

How to get test results

To get test results without having to call the surgery you can log in to your NHS App.

Please note that we do have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. This means that we can only give out results to the person they relate to if permission is granted, or if they are not capable of understanding the results.

Test results and specimens

Like all GP surgeries, our telephone lines can be extremely busy in the early morning, so we ask you please to telephone for test results between 2pm and 6pm only. Alternatively, you can also access your results online if you are signed up for online services.Please see our online services information on how to do this, or ask at reception for more information. To ensure confidentiality we can only release results to the patient, not to spouses or partners or parents unless disclosure to a third party has been agreed in writing.

Administrative staff will be unable to interpret results, but they can arrange for a Doctor or Nurse to phone you with more information and advice.

The health Centre will notify you if your test results require further action BUT please ring in to check things are normal if you don’t hear anything.

If you are asked to bring a specimen to the Health Centre, please make sure that it is in the proper sealed container and is clearly labelled with your NAME, DATE OF BIRTH and NHS NUMBER. Please make sure that you fill out symptoms form which you can get from reception. All specimens need to be placed in a clear bag before handing over to the reception desk. Our reception staff are NOT allowed to touch specimens.

How long does it take to get my test results?

When you attend a test of any kind, you will be told how long you should expect to wait for the results. Blood test results usually take five working days to get back and be checked by your GP. If there is anything that needs discussing further, your GP will call you as soon as they get the results back. If there are no problems with the results, then you will not be contacted.
