Tests & test results
Please help us by ensuring any specimens you are requested to provide are given in the correct container and are labelled. Failure to do so will mean the laboratory cannot process your specimen. Specimens must be brought in before 11.30 due to lab collection times.
The doctors review all test results and record a message for the patient. Unfortunately, due to the volume of test results the doctors and admin staff cannot phone every patient with their results. If you wish to find out your results, please call the practice.
Test Results requests are dealt with between 15.00 - 16.00. Phone 028 9145 5000 between these hours.
You will be advised of the usual length of time before we can expect results.
Please understand that we are bound to maintain patient confidentiality and therefore results will only be disclosed to the patient (not their spouse/partner) or to the parents of minors, i.e. under the age of 16, unless alternative arrangements have been agreed in writing.
