Test Results

Getting your test results

Communicating Results to Patients

The Practice adopts a ‘no news is good news’ approach in the communication of results.

This means that you won’t hear from us if the result is normal, but we will contact you by text, phone or letter if there is anything you need to know about.

If you want to check your results please contact the surgery on 0161 624 5457 to obtain your results around 5 working days after the sample has been taken.

If your test results show that you need more tests or treatment, we will contact you.

Once a doctor has reviewed your test results, you can view them:

  • in your NHS account (through the NHS website or NHS App)
  • phone or visit us and we will tell you what the results are

Questions about your results

If you want to talk to someone about your results, please contact the practice to book a telephone consultation.
