Specimens are sent to the hospital on Monday to Friday. If you are asked to bring a specimen on those days please ensure that we receive it before 12 noon.
These may be obtained by ringing 01892 603131 after 14:00.
The receptionist may then inform you of the result, or she may ask you to arrange an appointment with your doctor to discuss your result.
It is practice policy only to give results of medical tests to patients over 16 and to the parents of those below this age. In the interests of confidentiality, we may require you to confirm your identity when requesting results over the telephone.
