Tests & Results
In this page, you can look at the tests we conduct at Modern Medical Centre, and how you can check your test results. A clinician might recommend you to have a medical test to: find out what’s causing your symptom, screen for a specific condition or health problem, check your general health, or monitoring of a long term condition.
A blood test can be used to: Assess your general state of health, confirm the presence of a bacterial or viral infection see how well certain organs, such as the liver and kidneys, are functioning.

Blood test results: 5 days (it’ll likely take longer for some tests)
X-rays are a very effective way of detecting problems with bones, such as fractures. They can also often identify problems with soft tissue, such as pneumonia or breast cancer.
In order to maintain confidentiality, laboratory and X-ray results will only be given to patients themselves or to the parents of minors.
X-rays results: 1 to 2 weeks.
At Modern Medical Cantre, we also collect a range of other samples to help diagnose your health. This includes toenail clipping, stool samples, urine samples and swabs.
Toenail clippings: 4 weeks
Stool (poo) sample: 10 days
Urine and swabs: 5 days
