Blood Tests and Results

Blood tests are still being performed at the QE2 Hospital. 

Opening times are Monday-Thursday 08:00-17:30, Friday 08:00-17:00,Saturday 09:00-12.00. Sunday CLOSED.

There are some rare tests which may mean you have to go to Lister or Hertford Hospital for which the doctor should inform you.


If the doctor has asked you to telephone for a test result please do so between 2.00pm-4.30pm.  Most results will be available within 5 working days, although others such as antibody tests can take 2 weeks. 

X-ray results may be back within 10 days.  If you are making an appointment to discuss test results please try and make this with the doctor who arranged the tests.

It is practice policy only to give results of medical tests to the patient (when over 16) not to a relative or representative.

Please note that results of investigations requested by hospital doctors do not always come to us. So before making an appointment check with the reception staff first.
