Cervical Smears 

Please note that it may now take 4 - 6 weeks for their result letter to arrive, not the 2 weeks that is quoted in the invitation letter.

This is due to workloads in the laboratories, this does not mean there is a problem with your sample.

Please do not contact the laboratory for outstanding results, or any other enquiry about test results – they cannot discuss results with you and will refer you back to their sample taker.

 ‘Right Care First Time’



Here at Balderton Surgery we operate an On Call Triage system everyday to deal with on the day emergencies. In the first instance a telephone appointment will be offered with the On Call Duty GP, and if this cannot be dealt with over the phone, an appropriate appointment will be offered. In addition to this we also offer pre bookable/advanced appointments with our GP’s within the same week.


Although 111 is available 24 hours a day, this is not an emergency service, the GP Surgery should be contacted in the first instance, when open. 

Our Surgery opening hours are between 8am – 6.30pm Monday to Friday.

When the Surgery is closed, patients will be directed to the 111 service who will offer advice and direct you to the best route of care available.
