    Test Results

    Samples are sent to New Cross Hospital Monday to Friday via a courier service.

    If you are asked to provide a sample, please make sure it is delivered to the surgery by midday with name and date of birth on the bottle and the lid firmly on!

    Patients will only be contacted by surgery staff if further action is needed, although other results can be given over the telephone.

    Please note

    The rules governing confidentiality mean that test results will only be given to the patient, unless patient consent has already been given, or in the case of a child, to a parent or guardian.
