How can I get the results of a recent test?

You can speak to reception, or register for online access to your medical record

 

For routine test results, please call in at reception, or call the surgery on 0191 477 2243. The phone lines are always busy first thing in the morning, so we request that you call between 9.30 am and 5.30 pm for test results.

Most blood test results are usually available within 2 - 5 working days of the blood being taken.

Urine results are usually available within 2 working days of you handing in a sample.

Reports for X Rays or scans can sometimes take a few weeks.

If the GPs have reviewed your results and there is anything of concern, we will let you know as soon as we can.

If you have registered for online access to your medical record, you will be able to review your recent test results online. If you are not registered for this service, but would like to, please ask at reception for more information.
