Test results

Getting your test results

We will contact you by telephone, or by letter, only if a result is abnormal and you require treatment or further investigations. You will not be contacted if your result is normal. The doctor may leave a comment for you, and may ask you to make an appointment

If you wish to enquire about the results of your tests please telephone our team. Our phone lines are often busier in the morning and we advise waiting until the afternoon for a shorter wait.

Adults’ results will not be given to anyone other than the patient, unless you have given prior permission for sharing of information.

Once a doctor has reviewed your test results, you can view them:

  • in your NHS account (through the NHS website or NHS App)
  • in your SystmOnline account
  • phone or visit us between 10am to 4pm and we will tell you what the results are
