How can I find out a test result?
When your GP/ANP arranges for you to have a blood test the result will usually come back about a week later.
If any of the results are abnormal then the GP/ANP will ask reception to get in touch via telephone asking you to make an appointment. Please do not worry if you receive this call, they will say if you need to be seen urgently.
If your results are normal you will not routinely receive a text or call.
After 7 days you are welcome to call reception after 13:00 (Hawes 01969 667200 / Aysgarth 01969 663222) to confirm that your results are normal if you wish.
X-ray and scan reports can take longer than this to come back to your GP. As with blood tests, if there is anything which your GP/ANP wishes to discuss with you, they will send you a message/get reception to call you.
To obtain your results for these investigations please contact the surgery after 14 days.
Tests which are arranged by hospital consultants do not come automatically back to your GP until after you have seen the hospital doctor and been given the result personally.
Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.
