Tests and Results


Getting your results

If you have recently had any tests (blood tests, x-rays, etc), please call the surgery on 01253 890219 after 2pm on the day directed and you will be informed of the results.

If the results are normal no contact will be made by the surgery – however if any action results from your blood test you will be contacted by one of the reception team to advise you of the doctors instructions.

Request your results via the NHS App
