The majority of test results that are performed in the surgery are available in the practice a week after the test, although some specialist tests do take longer.
The practice does not receive results of tests performed in the hospital.
If the doctor wishes to offer you further treatment, you will be contacted and asked to make an appointment or sent a prescription with an explanatory letter along with it.
For confidentiality reasons, when a pregnancy test is performed, you are given a code number. Results of the test are only available on the telephone when you quote the code number.
