Please ring after 14:00 for the results of tests.
Tests which were carried out within the surgery should be available within one week, dependent on the type of test. It is the patient’s responsibility to contact the surgery for “normal” results. If the doctor is concerned about any results they will contact you either by telephone or letter.
Tests which are carried out at hospital often take longer to be returned to the practice than the hospital staff realise. Be patient with our staff if the test result is not available when you expect it. If the hospital clinician has any concerns they will contact you or the doctor here at the surgery to discuss them further.
Please note that we do have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. In this respect we will only give out results to the person they relate to unless that person has given prior permission for their release or if they are not capable of understanding them.
