We ask that you telephone after 2pm one week after your tests were done, to confirm that your results are back. Please do not wait for us to contact you or wait to receive a text message. Always phone for your test results, or check them online if you have access to your medical record online.
The results of all cervical smear tests will be sent to you by post.
If you had a test requested by a hospital consultant or doctor please contact them for the result.
Test results available
Texts will be sent once your results have been checked by a doctor. This service is still in its pilot phase, as currently only patients with results needing further action get a text message. Please make sure to ring the surgery for your test results.
Please be aware that tests are sent to several laboratories and take differing lengths of time to process. If you have more than one test done you may receive a text reminder for each individual result.
It is vital that we have your correct number on our records – if you need to update your mobile phone number please let us know at the surgery. If you do not wish to have text messaged results then please let reception know, so we can make a note on your medical record.
