Appletree Medical Practice

Your Health Matters!

Obtain your Test Results

Please allow 5-7 working days for test results to come back (smear test results usually take about 6 weeks).

Please telephone 01332 842288, option 2 after 1.00pm to obtain details of your test results (e.g. blood, urine, x-ray), or visit the Practice.

To ensure patient confidentiality test results will only be given to the patient direct and not to relatives or friends, unless alternative arrangements have been agreed in writing.

We will of course make every effort to contact you should your returned results indicate the need for urgent action. However, in all cases, it is the patient’s own responsibility to contact the surgery for the results of their tests.

The doctors check the results before our Reception staff are able to give out any information to you. Receptionists will only be able to state that the results are normal or that you have to see a doctor. Please do not expect them to relay any other details.
