TEST Result

Posted on:

Tests you have done are normally processed at the laboratories at University Hospital of North Durham. This will take a few days, following which they will be returned to our surgery for comment by your doctor.

The result should usually be ready for you 7 days after having your tests.

If your result is normal you will be given the result over the telephone by one of the reception staff. If the doctor needs to speak to you about the result, you will be asked to either make an appointment with the doctor or will be asked to ring back at a mutually convenient time.

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

in your NHS account (through the NHS website or NHS App)
