Blood results may take up to 1 week to come back.
Blood testing is usually done by Health care assistants. If you have a letter asking to make appointment for blood test, it would usually be with a HCA.
Results take up to 1 week to come back. Some bloods can be reported on next day. Please note for checking Blood sugar, Cholesterol levels, ideally we would need fasting blood tests. [Over night fasting for 12hours and Not to eat or drink anything in the morning ].
If you have undergone any of the above investigations ordered by the practice, the doctors will look into each and every of them and act accordingly.
If the results are normal and doctor decides no action needed, please note you might not be contacted. But please feel free to call us and confirm that they are indeed normal.
If the results are abnormal and doctor thinks they need to be acted upon, you will be contacted by staff members either to make a telephone or face to face consultation.
