Test results are normally received back from the laboratory within one week, however more complicated tests can take longer. The doctors’ secretaries or Practice Nurse can give the results of tests to you. Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we will only give you the results of your own tests, unless the patient has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.
