Granta Medical Practices Urine test

Urine (wee) Tests

A urinalysis is a test of your urine (wee). A urinalysis is used to detect and manage a wide range of disorders, such as urinary tract infections (UTI), kidney disease and diabetes. A urinalysis involves checking the appearance, concentration and content of urine.  Your GP will say if they want you to have this test, and provide you with the necessary collection receptacle.

Getting a Result

Urine and blood test results can take up to 7 working days to come back from the laboratory. The clinician will then need to read and interpret the result.  If the result is normal we will not contact you.

Our reception team will be able to tell you if your result is normal and if any further action is required. However, please bear in mind that they are not qualified to discuss any results with you.

Please note that we cannot report on blood tests that were taken by another service, i.e. the hospital or other community services. You would need to contact the clinician who originally requested the test for the result.
