If we arrange for you to have any blood tests or x-rays etc., please do not forget to contact the receptionist to check the results. Most blood tests are available a week after the test has been taken; on average it takes 14 days to receive x-ray results or correspondence from the hospital after an outpatient attendance. If you do wish to discuss a hospital appointment it is often very helpful to check that we have heard from the hospital before the time of your appointment as this can save an unnecessary consultation.
Specimens are collected from both surgeries on each weekday. If you have been
asked to bring in a specimen then it has to be at the Bearwood Surgery by 10.00 am.
and at the Banks Surgery by 11 .00am.
