Test Results

Blood Tests are available by appointment. Our Phlebotomist does blood tests Monday, Tuesday and Friday morning and our Health Care Assistant does blood tests every Wednesday and Thursday morning. If you are unable to attend at this time, you can have your blood test at Crawley Hospital. They are open 8.30am - 4 pm Monday to Friday. Please remember to phone reception after 2pm weekdays for all your test results. You are responsible for ringing for your results. It is not possible to call every patient with their results due to the volume of patients results we deal with. Blood and urine tests are usually back within 1 week, x-rays within 2-3 weeks. Due to patient confidentiality we are only able to give out results to the patient and no-one else ringing on their behalf.
