Test Results

If possible, test results will be discussed with you after a test has taken place. If it is not possible to discuss test results with you immediately your clinician will explain when you will receive these results. You may need to arrange another appointment to discuss what the results mean.

Please be patient with the receptionists as they are not medically trained and can only pass on what the doctor has told them.

Generally speaking:

  • most blood test results are available in seven days
  • most x-rays are available in a month
  • cervical smear results are posted to the patient directly within eight weeks
