Please note that as from 1st April 2018 we are no longer providing a Phlebotomy Service. All blood tests will need to be done at The Royal Free Hospital. You will need to take your test request form directly to them and they will take your blood sample and will process the results and report the results back to us in the usual way.
Patients are now able to view their results on line. Please speak to the reception for more information or assistance if required.
- Blood tests are usually ready in 2 working days
- Smear tests are usually ready in 2/3 weeks
- X-rays are usually ready in 7-10 working days
Tests and investigations arranged by the hospital
We spend a significant amount of time in contacting hospitals to chase up patients results that have been requested by consultants/specialists at the hospital. The General Medical Council advise that it is good practice and safer for patients to be followed up with test results by the requesting doctor. The doctors at the surgery are not always able to interpret results that are arranged within secondary care. If you have not heard the results of tests arranged by the hospital, please contact the relevant department for further information.
