Test Results

Test results can be obtained from the surgery by calling between 11.00am - 12.30pm or 4.00pm - 5.30pm on Monday - Friday.

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.

When you take your test you will be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice.

The practice will make contact with you if there is any action required as a result of your tests however it is also  your responsibility to call for your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if your are advised to do so.

 

New Initiative

We are introducing a text message servce for results following blood tests. We now are able to send one of two text messages to patients after a blood test:

  • Your results have been received and no action is required    or
  • Your results have been received please contact the your GP surgery

The latter comment is used when perhaps a repeat test is required or a prescription has been issued or maybe if the Dr would like to see you or has a message for you.
