Test results can vary in the time they take to come back to the practice.
This can be anything from 24 hours to 10 days.
X-rays and ultrasound scan results can take 2 to 3 weeks to be reported.

It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if you are advised to do so.
