Please note: We are unable to give results of tests that have been requested by your consultant. If your consultant has arranged a test for you, you will need to contact the consultants secretary to obtain the results of those tests.
Results of blood tests, X-rays and other investigations, arranged by your doctor, arrive electronically and have to be checked by a doctor.
- It is your responsibility to check your results.
- Please only telephone for results between 3.00pm and 5.00pm.
- We will only contact you if the Doctor wishes to explain the results to you face to face or if further treatment or investigation is required.
If your results come back normal (our receptionist will pass a comment on from the Doctor saying, "tell patient test OK") but you feel you still have symptoms or concerns, please make a routine appointment - telephone or face to face - to discuss further with a doctor.
Our receptionists are not trained to interpret results and can only pass on messages from the doctor.
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.
