Investigations & Test Results

Test Results – We would not usually contact patients about normal results. The Surgery will contact you should a result be abnormal requiring further treatment or investigation. Up to date contact details would be appreciated. Most blood, swab, urine and X-ray results come back within a week but some take longer. Minor operation samples take 8 weeks. Cervical screening results take 3 weeks and are sent to you directly at home. Urine samples may be tested for different reasons-if you feel you have an infection, please bring in a sample and fill in a quick form at reception, the GP/Nurse will test the sample and contact you with the result. If you are interested in knowing more about particular investigations the website has some useful information.

If you would like the results from your investigations then please ring reception after 11:00am and speak to reception

Welcome to Kirkoswald Surgery website where you will find lots of useful information about your local Practice.


Please take time to browse and see the services that we offer. However, before you do, could we ask that you make a note of a couple of points that would be really appreciated in respect of our Dispensary. Firstly, could we ask that you give us at least 2 full working days notification to allow us to prepare all medications and secondly please note that prescriptions are currently £9.65 per item. The good news is, that for your convenience, we are now able to take card payments. However, if you prefer to pay by cash, it would be really helpful if you could have the correct change available.


Thank you for your cooperation.
