Specimens are sent to the hospital at 09:45 and 13:15 Monday to Friday. If you are asked to bring in a specimen please ensure that we receive it before these times.
Results of Medical Tests
These may be obtained by ringing 01698 813 873 between 11:00 and 17:00 Monday to Friday. The receptionist may then inform you of the result or she may ask you to arrange an appointment with a doctor to discuss it.
Most blood tests are returned in 1 week and X-rays in 2 weeks.
The practice will only inform patients regarding abnormal results requiring further action.
All cervical smear results will be notified by letter from the Scottish Cervical Call & Recall System. Please note that it takes 4-6 weeks for smear tests to be analysed by the labs and results letters are sent shortly after that.
Please note that we do have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. In this respect we will only give out results to the person they relate to unless that person has given prior permission for their release or if they are not capable of understanding them.
