Test results01233 884 5858.30am - 4.30 pm Monday to Friday
To get the results of a medical test please ring our test results line between 8.30am and 4.30pm Monday to Friday.
We will only give the results to you – not to anyone else ringing on your behalf unless we have your prior consent.
Most test results take several days to come back, but this varies. When you have your test, you will be given an indication of how long it will be before we expect to get your results.
Cervical smear testsIf you have had a cervical smear test, the Health Authority will post your results directly to you. This normally takes around 6 weeks.
Fit Note (certificates)
Off sick for 7 days or lessYour employer may ask you to complete a self certification form (SC2). Download form SC2 here.
If your employer or an insurance company requires a certificate in your first week of illness, your GP can provide a private certificate for which there is a charge (sometimes your employer or insurance company may be charged for this).
NHS doctor’s certificates (Fit Notes) are not issued unless you are off sick from work with an illness, injury or condition lasting more than 7 days.
Off sick for 8 days or more You must be seen by your GP before they can issue you with a sickness certificate.
If you have been seen by a Consultant at the Hospital or have been an inpatient, they should provide you with a Fit Note.
Wye Surgery is part of the Ashford Clinical Providers (ACP) group, which works together to improve primary healthcare services for patients locally.
To help cut down waiting times we are, as a group, offering extra routine appointments at flexible times and locations across the Ashford area. As a result, you can now pre-book routine appointments with ACP’s healthcare professionals between 8am and 8pm:
For these extra appointment slots, you may be seen at any of ACP’s local practices - not necessarily at Wye Surgery. But the health professionals treating you will, with your consent, be able to see your full medical records; and your own GP at Wye Surgery will be kept informed.
New flexible appointments are in addition to those already offered by Wye Surgery.
Please pre-book all flexible appointments through us in the usual way.
