Test Results

When routine procedures and tests are ordered for you, please phone the nurse for your results if you have not been contacted within 48 hours. You should be advised at the time of your test approximately how long it will take us to receive your results. Should your results be abnormal you will be contacted by your doctor, their locum doctor or the nurse on the doctor’s instructions.
