When you attend for a test of any kind you will be told how long you should expect to wait for the results. Please bear this in mind and call the surgery after 11.00 am and once sufficient time has elapsed.
If you are registered for Patient Access you can look up your test results online yourself. As soon as the results have arrived and the doctors have reviewed them, you will be able to see them in your electronic record. If there is any cause for concern, the doctor will have made arrangements to contact you.
Our reception staff are not qualified to comment on results. Therefore it is your responsibility to check them and make any necessary follow-up appointment with the doctor.
Please note, 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.
