Test results

Results are normally back within a week, although x-rays can take longer. If the doctor needs to discuss your results with you, we will contact you to make an appointment. If you don’t hear from us you should assume your results are satisfactory.

However, if you are anxious and want to call, please call after 10.00pm when our reception staff will have more time to deal with your request.  Depending on the test, you may be able to see the result in the Evergreen App.

We can only give test results to you or your legal guardian unless we have your written consent.

When you take your test you will be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice. It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if you are advised to do so.

Need a little help?

To help you get started with the Evergreen app and creating your account there are a series of help articles available.  Linking your account to your GP record will enable the full functionality of the app including records access and repeat prescriptions as well as enabling you to make requests for help online.

You can link using an NHS ID which is the easiest method for both you and the practice team, or by using linkage codes supplied by the practice.

We’ve also created a walk-through video to show the steps of using the app for the first time.
