It depends.
It can quite often be a couple of weeks though before the doctors get the results.
Remember the hospital are processing so much blood, that unfortunately it all takes time.
I guess the only thing the Doctor can do is mark it urgent. Good luck. X

Can be as little as a few hours if it's urgent, eg you're in A&E or your GP is extremely worried / you have history of ill-health.

If it's routine it will most likely be 2-3 days. But if you have a great GP/hospital that isn't as busy and/or send bloods more than once daily you could get the results in 24 hours

(I work in a GP surgery lol)

If you were told a day, then it's probably gonna take a day..!

Why did you ask this question if the people doing your bloods told you how long it would probably take? lol

The receptionist working at your surgery has a much better idea than a bunch of people on the internet who may not even live in the same country as you. If they don't come back in 1 day, just call the next day.
