Urine Cytology test


does anyone know how long it normally takes to get the results back for a standard urine cytology test here in the UK?

My urologist handed me a chit of paper and told me to 'take this to pathology' and then walked out of the room.

I asked my GP if they could advise whether they will get the results and I was told 'come back in a month'

I have also been advised that I am to have a Ureteroscopy within 2 weeks of my appt with the Urologist so he can biopsy what is in my Uretera and when I chased this up with the hospital the lady on the phone said 'he is so busy and so naughty he is always forgetting to ask us to book procedures for him and no, I have not seen anything for you. call again in a weeks time'.

I am not particularly concerned about a few days delay, but I find the whole lack of communication maddening. I work away during the week (700 miles away from home) and cant just pop around to suit.

Any advice on normal waiting times will be appreciated. At this rate I will have the biopsy results first

best wishes
