Specimens & Investigations
If you are asked to bring any kind of specimen to either surgery, please do so before 10.30am (please ensure that the correct forms are enclosed with the specimen), at which time a van from the laboratory collects all specimens.
The doctor or other member of staff will advise when results of investigations are likely to be available and at which surgery.
For test results, please phone after 11.30am.
Please allow one week for blood, stool or urine results, and four weeks for smear results.
Results will be given only to the patient (unless the patient is under the age of 16) and not to a representative of the patient unless written permission is received by the practice.
