Blood Tests & Specimens
Specimens should be brought into the surgery by 11.30am on weekdays as the samples are collected then for transport to the hospital. Receptionists cannot accept samples that are not in appropriate laboratory containers. Please make sure specimens are clearly marked with your name.
Blood tests are done at our surgery so please call on 020 8902 4792 and book your appointment.
Please phone the surgery after 11.30 for all test results. It usually takes at least 1 week for the results to come through. Cervical Smear results could take up to 3 weeks or more.
Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.
When you take your test you will be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice.
We usually send a text to you regarding your abnormal results to contact practice so please update your correct contact details.
As soon as you change your contact details, do let us know immediately.
It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if you are advised to do so.
