Most blood test results are returned to the surgery within 48 hours, some often sooner than this. You can telephone the surgery after 2pm for results of blood tests, urine specimens and other swabs.
We regret that confidentiality requirements do not permit us to disclose results to a third party, even if it is a spouse. If the member of staff is in any doubt as to whom they are speaking, they are authorised to refuse the request.
Cervical smear results are automatically sent to the patient (unless a specific request has been made for this to be avoided).
