When the GP requests a blood test for you they will advise you of an approximate time it will take for the Pathology Lab to report on it, they will ask you to look at your result online or call in for the result. When the Path Lab send the result back it is reviewed by a GP who will then decide what needs doing.  If it is something urgent they will ask the admin team to contact you otherwise you will need to call in to get the result or  check it on line.
