Getting a urine test

Results of urine and blood tests usually take at least seven working days to come back from the laboratory. We do not contact you with results. The person ordering the test should tell you whether you need a further appointment after or whether you should phone reception.

Please phone in the afternoon or evening for results as they arrive with us after lunch. Alternatively you can sign up for detailed coded data online and view your results yourself. Please contact reception.

The doctor needs to read and interpret each result first. The receptionist will be able to tell you if any further action is required but is not qualified to discuss the result with you. Should this be necessary, please make an appointment to come in and see your doctor. Alternatively you might book an appointment for the doctor to ring you.

Blood tests (phlebotomy)

Times Weekdays - times vary but generally between 8.30 am - 2 pm.
Patients Anyone over 10 yrs old.
Booking Phlebotomist appointments may be booked in the usual way. You would need to take any request forms from the hospital (though these blood tests are generally most appropriately done at the hospital). Forms for tests requested by the practice can be obtained from the relevant clinician or at reception, though some test requests may remain on the computer system and be printed at the phlebotomy appointment.
