Please wait for 3 weeks before phoning for X-rays or hospital letters and 10 working days before phoning for bloods. The doctors will look at your results and give advice accordingly.
Receptionists are not medically trained so can only relay results that the doctor has commented on. If there is anything urgent on a test result the GP will contact you immediately.
If the doctor has not yet seen your results you may be asked to ring back or arrange a telephone consultation one morning. Asking to speak to the emergency doctor for test results is not permitted and as stated above if the result requires immediate or urgent attention the GP will contact you in person.
