Obtaining Test Results
These are available after 3.30 pm. Results are obtained by a computer link from the hospital and are not accessed by the GP's until the afternoon.
Blood and urine results usually take 3-4 working days to 'turn around' at the hospital. Other specialist non-urgent tests (e.g. Ultrasound, MRI, CT scans) can take up to 4 weeks to come back.
Receptionists are not qualified to read results and will only be able to give you your result if the doctor has seen it and authorised them to do so. You do not need an appointment to receive blood/urine results unless indicated by your GP.
