Results and Hospital Letters

For the results of tests and investigations, please contact the practice after 14:00.

Normally blood and x-ray results take 7-10 days to arrive. Once seen by the doctor, the results can be given out provided they are requested by the patient, the parent or  the guardian of patients under 16. A named person who has signed permission or power of attorney can also request the results on the patients behalf.


Letters and reports following outpatient appointments normally take about 14 days to reach the surgery. If you need to see your GP following a hospital appointment, inform us when you request an appointment so we can ensure the appropriate report is available.
