Results usually arrive back within 7 – 10 days. During your consultation your nurse or doctor will advise you when is the best time to call. It is the responsibility of the patient to follow up on test results. When calling for results you may leave a voice message requesting test results (option 2 on our automated service). The doctor or nurse may send a text message regarding results or arrange an appointment to discuss face to face.

Your doctor will receive the results of tests and scans that they have ordered. If you have attended a consultant who subsequently orders tests and/ or scans as part of their diagnosis or treatment, please be aware that these results are not automatically shared with your doctor. If you wish for your doctor to receive a copy of results, please advise your consultant of this or request your own copy which you can then give to your doctor.
