Samples can be left at the surgery every weekday. They are collected for delivery to the hospital at 4pm. Please bring samples in a container provided by the Surgery or pharmacy. Please ensure that the container is labelled with your name and date of birth.
Most test results are received electronically from the hospital each day and are viewed by the doctors before the result can be passed onto the patient. If telephoning for results please ring after 2.00pm.
In order to maintain confidentiality, test results will only be given to patients themselves or to parents if the patient is a minor.
Different tests can take different lengths of time before the result is available.
