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 12.00 noon once sufficient time has elapsed. Test results take time to reach us, so please do not ring before you have been asked to do so.
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.
We kindly ask patients to be patient with our receptionists when you call; they are not medically qualified and can only pass on the comment which the GP has attached to the result.
Enquiries about tests ordered by the hospital should be directed to the hospital, not the practice.
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.
