Tests & Results

 

Blood Tests
There are a limited number of appointments for blood tests which can be carried out at the Surgery and appointments can be made via the reception desk.

Alternatively, you can have your blood test at the hospital where a walk-in service is available on week days between 7.30 am and 4.45 pm on week days (unfortunately, they cannot guarantee that you will be seen if you arrive after 3.30 pm).

You are now able to book appointments for blood tests at the hospital by calling 01256 314751.

Some blood tests e.g. glucose tolerance tests are  done at the hospital on an appointment only basis.

X-rays

If you have been referred by your GP for an x-ray then Basingstoke Hospital offer a walk-in service and an appointment is not always necessary.  The opening times are Monday to Friday: 8.00 am to 4.00 pm, excluding Bank Holidays.  If you have any queries, their phone number is 01256 314789.

X-rays generally take between 10-14 days to be received by the Practice.

Test Results

Due to the fact that we receive a large number of test results each day, we are not able to contact patients individually about their results.  We ask that you telephone the surgery 7 days after a test to obtain the result.  When you call, our receptionist will be able to pass on any comments made by your GP and arrange either a telephone consultation or appointment if required.  Please do not ask them to interpret the results as they are not clinically trained.

Please call for test results after 2:30 pm.
