Does anyone know how long it generally takes for blood test results to come back? I had a blood test on monday (mainly looking at the full blood count, although it tested for other things as well), and am a bit nervous about the results. If it's past the time it normally takes, then at least I can relax a bit! I had it done at the hospital as opposed to the g.p's, don't know if that makes a difference? Thanks, Tates x

they were done at the hospital and the results were back at my gp's in 8 days.
“I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in life. And I am horribly limited.”
At the surgery I work at we can usually get FBC results on the system after three working days - paper version takes about seven working days.
Other tests can take longer. You know you can ring the hospital - ask to be put through to the pathology lab and just tell them why you're ringing - for some results etc and they should let you know what they are. If you're worried it could put your mind at ease. The haematology department tests fbc.
