Results

When you attend for a test of any kind you will ususally be told how long you should expect to wait for the results. Please bear this in mind and please only call the surgery once the time youve been given has elapsed. 

The reception staff are not qualified to comment on results therefore it is your responsibility to make any necessary follow-up appointment with the doctor.

Please note that we do have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. We will only give out results to the person they relate to unless that person has given prior permission for their release or if they are not capable of understanding them.

 

Blood Tests

Blood tests have a wide range of uses and are one of the most common types of medical test. For example, a blood test can be used to:

  • assess your general state of health
  • confirm the presence of a bacterial or viral infection
  • see how well certain organs, such as the liver and kidneys, are functioning

A blood test usually involves the phlebotomist taking a blood sample from a blood vessel in your arm. and the usual place for a sample is the inside of the elbow or wrist, where the veins are relatively close to the surface. Blood samples from children are most commonly taken from the back of the hand. The child's hand will be anaesthetised (numbed) with a special cream before the sample is taken. 

The normal time it takes for a blood test to come back to the surgery is around 3-5 days. Some blood tests may take longer than others to come back. 

 

 

XRays 

XRays are usually done at Whitby Hospital. If the Dr feels you need an urgent XRay then you will be given a form and sent down to the hospital the same day, if it is routine then you will recieve an appointment for your Xray in the post. The results usually take 5-7 days to come back to the surgery. This is sometimes not guaranteed due to staffing etc at the hospital.
