Killearn Health Centre – Information on Blood Test Results
How long will I have to wait to get my test result?
Most tests are analysed within 1 week, however there are certain tests which require several weeks to be analysed.
How do I get my test result?
Every result is reviewed by a Clinician. If your result indicates the need for immediate attention, the Practice will contact you as a matter of urgency.
If your result needs action, but not urgently, the Practice will contact you within an appropriate timescale to explain what action needs to be taken.
As we receive a large number of test results, it is not possible for each individual to be contacted if no action is required.
If you prefer to contact the Practice for your result, please telephone reception after 11am.
What if you can’t contact me by telephone?
If action is required and we can’t contact you, we will send you a letter to let you know about your result or ask that you contact us.
What if I need a copy of the result?
If you need a copy to take to an appointment or just for your records, please ask Reception when you phone about your result
