It is your responsibility to contact the practice and find out your results. Please allow 5 working days from the date of any test and call the surgery after 10am. Some test results may take longer to come back, including some blood tests and X rays. RESULTS OF TESTS ORGANISED BY HOSPITAL CLINICIANS ARE SENT BACK TO THEM AND YOU SHOULD GET THE RESULT FROM THEM> This can take a bit longer
Our reception staff are not qualified to comment on results but they can pass on messages from the doctor and make any necessary follow-up appointment with the doctor/nurse.
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.
Specimens should be handed in to the surgery before 14.00 hrs Monday to Thursday and before 12.30 hrs Friday to ensure collection that day.
