Specimens are sent to the hospital Monday to Friday. If you are asked to bring a specimen to the surgery, please ensure that we receive it before 11.00am for hospital transport to collect.
Results may be obtained by telephoning the surgery during the afternoon between 1.30pm and 3.30pm. In most cases the receptionist will be able to tell you the outcome of the test.
Results are normally available within a few days.
X ray results and MRI scans may take longer to be reported by the hospital.
