Test Results

Please telephone the surgery between 10:30 and 12:30 and between 14:00 and 16:00, Monday to Friday.

We can only give results for investigations that we have ordered. Results will only be given to patients themselves or to the parents/guardian of minors if appropriate. If you have had several tests done, it is important that you check that all the results are back.

For tests requested by Fernville Surgery, if you have any abnormal results and an action is required from you, we will contact you within a week. However, if there is something seriously wrong we will contact you within 24 hours with a management plan.

​For annual reviews, if you have not heard from us within two weeks then it is likely no further management is required, however please call Reception to confirm. If you would like to know your results please telephone the surgery between 11:00 and 15:00.​

Test results usually take the following times to return from hospital:

  • Blood and Urine – 1 – 2 weeks
  • X-rays, US or ECG – 3 weeks
  • Cervical Smear – 3 – 4 weeks

​If you have not received results for any hospital investigations such as MRI, CT, or endoscopies, please speak with your consultant directly.
