Results can take differing lengths of time to come back depending on the particular test.
Please contact the surgery to obtain your results between 11.30 am -6.00 pm. The doctor will usually advise the medical receptionist of your results. Should the doctor wish to discuss the results, you will be contacted via letter or telephone and requested to make an appointment.
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 perosn has given prior permission for the results to be given to a named person or they are not capable of undertstanding the results.
It is your responsibility to find out the results of your tests and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if you are advised to do so.
If the doctor or nurse requests that you bring a specimen to the practice it should be left at reception before 3pm Monday to Friday. Please ensure that the specimen container is properly labelled as investigations will not be carried out on un-labelled specimens.
