Please telephone 0191 5170170 Option 3 for results of any tests you have had. We request that you try and ring between 14:00 and 18:00 Monday to Friday when the telephone lines are not so busy and the reception staff have more time to find your results.
Please allow 5 working days for blood tests and 10 working days for X-ray results. You must also allow at least 10 – 14 working days for letters coming directly from the hospital.
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.
Please note that our receptionists are not clinical staff and are not able to interpret the blood results. They can only tell you the information as filed on the medical record. If you require further information regarding your results, please make a telephone appointment with the Doctor who requested the test.
