Getting your test results
When you take your test you will be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice. Our Reception staff are not qualified to comment on results therefore it is your responsibility to check them and make any necessary follow-up appointment with the Doctor. Please note if a result is abnormal you will usually be contacted to arrange a follow up appointment.
Once a doctor has reviewed your test results, you can view them:
