To receive your test results call us on 9598 9911,  between 1.00 pm and 2.00 pm.  A nurse will take your call and provide you with your results.

Please Note - Notification of results will be only to the patient unless consent to disclose the results to a third party has been given by the patient.  This applies to all patients aged 15 years and over.  Consent is usually recorded in the patient's file.  For more information see our Privacy Policy.

All test results are checked & assessed by your Doctor.  Information regarding a result is not available until results are received and checked by your Doctor.

If a result requires Urgent action, the Doctor, or the nurse, will make immediate telephone contact with you to make an urgent appointment with the Doctor.

If the test result requires non urgent follow-up with your Doctor, a letter will be sent advising you to make an appointment within two weeks.

For general results information, telephone between 1.00 pm and 2.00 pm and your results will be provided by the Nurse on duty.   Allow a minimum of 4 working days from the day of the test, to ensure they have been received and checked by your Doctor.

Please Note: The first priority for our nurses is contacting Urgent Recall and Follow-up patients.   If the Nurse is particularly busy, and if your results are Normal,  it may be the next day before they are able to return your call.

Pap smear results will be notified in writing within two weeks of having the smear.  If you have not received notification of your smear result within two weeks, please telephone the clinic to enquire.
