Please call between 10am and 12 noon or between 2pm and 4pm for results of tests. Please allow at least three working days for blood test results. Ultrasound and X ray results can take up to three weeks. Please remember that certain tests can take longer so results may not be available to quickly.
In order to maintain confidentiality we are unable to give results to anyone other than the patient, except for children under the age of 16.
Hospital mail arrives during the morning but it is not seen by the doctor until after surgery. Our staff cannot interpret results or offer medical advice.
The first few hours of the day are incredibly busy and the telephone lines can soon become overloaded. This is not only frustrating for you but may be dangerous for someone else.
