Please telephone the surgery between 11.00 - 16.00, Monday to Friday for the results of any tests you have undergone. The telephone is not as busy then and the Reception staff are more able to assist you.
All results are viewed by a doctor who will advise of any further action required. This message will then be passed on via the reception staff.
When you take your test you will be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice.
It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if your are advised to do so.
Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and 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.
If you are requested to provide a specimen we would prefer you to collect and use a specimen container which is available at the Reception desk.
Please always write your full name, date of birth and the date of the specimen on the container before handing it back to the Reception on the same day, before 12.00 noon.
