The clinician who orders a test should advise you on how to get the results.
We are often now using text messaging for test results. Please let your clinician know if you would prefer not to use this method.
If you have a review appointment planned, it is generally better to wait for this opportunity to get your results. Otherwise you may end up speaking to someone who hasn’t been involved with your care, making results harder to interpret.
If you don’t have any specific follow up planned, and haven’t received a text message, you can telephone the practice on 0151 2854578. If your results are entirely normal, the receptionist may have authorisation to tell you this. Otherwise a clinician will call you back.
It is generally better to telephone in the morning for results, and please leave at least a week after your test before phoning.
