"Blood tests!"

About: Chesterfield Royal Hospital

I am appalled at how long it takes for blood tests to come back! I had my blood taken at around 1:40am and now, 6 hours later 7:51 i still havnt got my results

Response from Chesterfield Royal Hospital

I was sorry to read you were disappointed with the time it took to get your blood test results. Hopefully the reason for the test was explained to you in the emergency department, along with an understanding of how long it might take to test the sample in the lab. Timing can be affected by a number of issues such as the type of test required, how busy the service is etc. I do hope you are making a good recovery now and that your results didn't indicate anything too serious. Best wishes Sarah Turner-Saint, Head of Communications
