Last year they were over 4 weeks, the year before 5 days (and I presumed the worst, but they were fine), the year before over 4 weeks..... Timescale of results is dependent on how busy the department is and the backlog of images they have to look at, any holidays in between etc. Delay doesn't mean good, and it doesn't mean bad, quick results doesn't mean good and doesn't mean bad - you get the idea. This of course doesn't help Neverending_story, and it makes it all the more painful whilst you are waiting, I know and many many others know the feeling too. All you can do is hang on in there and try to get on with things whilst putting it to the back of your mind. I would say if you had it on Monday morning, and they said '5 days or so' (that'll be working days) then I wouldn't expect to hear anything until next week.
    Thanks for the reply - I had the scan on Monday Oct 7th

    Oh I see, thats annoying, but to be honest not unexpected for NHS results - Can your surgery (in the absence of your GP) not ring the department to try and chase them ?

    I will call them again tomorrow and find out - the company that did my ultrasound states

    Your Ultrasound results will be reported on the day, the report will be delivered to your GP. Please contact your Surgery seven days after your scan to get your results.

    Oh, I see. If they state those time-scales clearly on their information then you are of course well within your rights to hassle the surgery. I wonder if its a letter sat waiting for your GP, that hasn't been opened as she/he is away ?

    Well yes I think so too! I will call them again tomorrow and ask them to chase it up if I have not heard anything - also not sure if my Dr is back as yet so will have to check that also

    All diagnostic results come back to the primary Dr online via email, so the Dr can receive the results anytime, they don't have to be back at the surgery. They can contact you anytime if it's anything serious.
