Tests and Results


How and when to obtain test results from Greggs Wood and Speldhurst Medical Group

Getting your test results

The receptionists are not clinically trained to explain test results to patients. They can only pass on any information regarding your test that the doctor instructs them to tell you. The receptionists will book you a telephone consultation if you wish to discuss your results with a doctor.

Please allow at least 10 working days for X-ray results to come back from the hospital and be checked. For all other routine tests allow three days and contact the surgery for the results between 10am and 2pm. It is the responsibility of the patient to contact the surgery for their results. Please note that patient information is only given to the patient (normally aged over 16) and not to a relative, unless consent has previously been given.

If your test has been requested by a hospital consultant, these will go back to the consultant to be reviewed, they will then send us a letter summarising all of their findings, this sometimes takes longer.
