Test Results

If you have had a blood test, x-ray or scan it is important that you find out the result

Whilst we try to contact people with abnormal results, you should not assume that no news is good news.

Please ensure we have your up-to-date contact details, especially your phone number and email address.

Our reception staff are not qualified to comment on results therefore it is your responsibility to check them and make any necessary follow-up appointment with the doctor.

How do I find out my result?


The easiest way to find out your test results is via the online portal SystmOnline or the NHS App. Once you register for online services, then it’s simply a matter of logging into the portal and visiting the “patient record” section and clicking on “view test result”.

You can even look up historical results by visiting the “patient record” section and clicking “full clinical records”. You will be able to view the doctors comments and see the actual result. If you need further tests or treatment, then this will be indicated alongside the results and you can arrange this via the online portal or by contacting reception.

By Phone

Contact the surgery after 16:00hrs one week after your test result. This allows enough time for the results to come back from the laboratory and for the GP to review them.

Please do not ask a relative or friend to telephone the surgery on your behalf, results will only be given to the patient and not to a patients representative (except in the case of children, or when prior written consent has been given for a carer to act on your behalf).
