General Information about test results
Please remember that the staff can only act in accordance with the Doctor’s instructions so may not be able to give you a result. This does not necessarily mean that there is a problem but simply that the Doctor needs to see you or talk to you to explain the whole situation.
Our reception staff are instructed to pass results on to patients themselves once they have been read by a Doctor.
Results for patients over 16yrs can only be given to the patient. Results can be given to someone other than the patient if previously arranged with Doctor.
The results of tests carried out during hospital visits are not normally sent to the practice.
Results of Smear Tests
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 surgery to have it repeated. If there are any problems with your smear that needs referral to a Gynaecologist the surgery will contact you to see a doctor in the surgery. 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.
Specimens should be handed in as early in the day as possible. Please ensure your name and date of birth are on the container.
