Get Test Results

Please allow 5-7 working days for test results to come back (smear test results usually take about 6 weeks).

Please telephone 01332 842288 after 1.00pm to obtain details of your test results (e.g. blood, urine, x-ray), or visit the Practice.

To ensure patient confidentiality test results will only be given to the patient direct and not to relatives or friends, unless alternative arrangements have been agreed in writing.

We will of course make every effort to contact you should your returned results indicate the need for urgent action. However, in all cases, it is the patient’s own responsibility to contact the surgery for the results of their tests.

The doctors check the results before our Reception staff are able to give out any information to you. Receptionists will only be able to state that the results are normal or that you have to see a doctor. Please do not expect them to relay any other details.



Following Government guidance, we are now able to plan to invite patients for their flu jabs and covid boosters.  These vaccinations (one in each arm) will be given at the same appointment.  The covid booster cannot be given until 6 months after you received your second covid vaccine.   You are likely to be offered a full dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine (or, less likely, a half dose of the Moderna vaccine).  This follows scientific evidence showing that both of these vaccines provide a strong booster response, regardless of which vaccine you initially had.


We are currently working very hard to put these clinics in place so please bear with us.  We will be contacting eligible patients either by text, phone or letter inviting you to book an appointment a the Babington Vaccination Hub.


Eligible Under 18’s are the exception and will be offered the Nasal Flu vaccination at the Duffield Surgery.  Again, invitations will be sent by text, phone or letter.


We are still awaiting guidance regarding administering the covid vaccination to ‘At Risk’ children.
