We only receive test results for tests performed or organised by the surgery. Tests performed in hospital are not automatically sent to the practice.
Please contact the surgery between 10:00 – 16:00 to obtain the test results when the surgery is a little quieter and can deal with the request. Please 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 themselves. When the results are returned to the practice the doctors review the results and attach comments.
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 you are advised to do so.
