Test results

NHS investigations are based on clinical need and need to be authorised by a clinician. Once your test has been authorised, please do ensure that you prepare for it. Make sure your contact details are up to date and ensure that you have a nominated pharmacy. That way we will be able to send you a text message with your results and if necessary we can send any necessary medication after your test results straight to your pharmacy. You can also see your results online.

We often advise blood tests, urine tests and stool tests. What happens when you’ve had your test? Where do the test results go? After your appointment, it normally takes about 3 days to get the results back, and we’ll send you a text. Sometimes it can be quicker or longer, depending on the amount we have or whether there are any backlogs at the lab. If you find that your results are taking longer than usual, get in touch and we’ll look into why this could be happening.

We’ll send a text message with your results, but you can also view your results online.

Although your test results might be satisfactory, you may want to discuss them. If so, give us a call between 8-10 Monday to Friday and you can speak to a clinician.
