The surgery does not routinely contact patients to give them test results. We only contact patients where there is a need for follow-up. If you have had tests done but haven't heard from us then it is safe to assume that the results are normal.
If you want to know your results please contact reception who will be happy to help.
Please telephone for results in the afternoon, when the telephone is less busy. If your result needs further action, we will contact you by telephone or letter.
The practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. We will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.
We will only provide test results for those tests requested in primary care. For tests requested by the hospital doctor you will need to contact the hospital directly as it is their responsibility to interpret and arrange any necessary follow-up.
Patients are advised that the surgery will always contacts patients whose results require follow up.
Allow seven days for the results to come back to the surgery. Some test results may take longer.
When leaving samples, please put your name and date of birth on the sample.
