Obtaining Test Results Jun 28 2017 As we deal with many test results on a daily basis it is our policy to inform patients of their results by text message; a telephone call may be made if results require more explanation. The laboratory, Wellington SCL, can send copies of results directly to you if you request that at the time of your blood test (while you are still at the laboratory). Most test results are available in 5-7 working days, but some do take longer. If you have not received notification of test results within the expected time frame please leave a message and one of our clinical staff will contact you. Reception staff do not have access to your results and cannot help you with these. We encourage patients to be actively involved in their care and following up on test results helps this process.
