Test results

Blood test results

If you had a blood test at the surgery you can view the results once a member of the clinical team has reviewed the results by using:

  • Your GP online system if you already have an account.
  • If you do not have an account then please come and ask at reception for login details. Please then use your login details provided to register for an online account to use this service.

If your blood test results require further action then we will contact you by text, email, telephone or via post. It is your responsibility to ensure ALL your contact details are correct and up to date. If you need to update these details then please contact us.

If you do not hear about a test result after 14 days but you have further questions or wish to discuss the results further please make an appointment request online by clicking on this link.

Our Reception staff are not qualified to comment on test results so please do not ask them. It will be your responsibility to check your test result using the above method.

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.

Tests arranged by a hospital consultant or another health care service

If your test was NOT requested by us at the surgery then PLEASE call the Hospital or clinic who arranged the test for the result. We cannot safely interpret or action test results which have been requested by another healthcare professional not working at our surgery.


Please only drop a specimen off at the surgery if a member of our clinical team have requested you do so.

Specimens are best dropped off Monday-Friday 08:00-14:00 to ensure we are able to send them away to the hospital on the same day if required.

All specimens must be provided in a suitable container.

All specimens must be clearly labelled with full name, date of birth, date provided, type of specimen.

Failure to comply with the above requests may mean that the test will need to be repeated which will cause a delay in getting results.

Laboratory tests

For further information on what your test results mean you may find Lab Tests Online helpful in providing an explanation of what the tests are and what the results may mean.

Other tests performed outside of the NHS including Abroad

Any test carried out by a service outside of the NHS or abroad will not appear on our systems and are therefore not accessible to us. We are therefore often unable to comment on the results and would encourage you to discuss the results with the original health care provider who made the request. It is your responsibility to provide us with copies of all test results in english if you are still seeking advice despite the above advice. This is to ensure we comply with best clinical practice.
