Laboratory test findings will usually be available one week from when the sample is taken. Please telephone after 11:00 to find out your results.
If the result is available, you will be given the comment written by the doctor and if necessary you may be asked to make an appointment to see your GP; please note that the reception team are NOT qualified to discuss test results.
Bethesda does not routinely contact patients to let them know of test results because of the volume involved.
Please note that we do have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. In this respect 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.
Test results can now be sent to you via SMS. Please note that the SMS notification will only state whether they are normal or abnormal, and whether you need to see a GP for a follow-up. To ensure you get the best service from this new feature, please check your contact details are correct and up to date.
