General Information about Test Results

In the majority of cases the results will be within Normal or expected limits and in these circumstances your Doctor may ask the Receptionist to inform you that the result in normal when you enquire.

Should the Doctor need to see you the Receptionist will book an appointment in accordance with the Doctors instructions. Usually the first available routine appointment is offered but in cases of urgency a same day or next day appointment is arranged.

For a variety of reasons a test may need to be repeated or medication may be prescribed and often the Practice Nurse will speak to you about this.

The results of tests carried out during hospital visits are not normally sent to the practice.

Normal smears are recalled every 3 years or if you have abnormal smears it may be more frequently. Sometimes a smear is inadequate you will be called by the

Smear results can take a few weeks to come back from the Cytology Department, you should also receive a copy of the result in the post.
