Test Results

Please telephone for your results of tests, between the hours of 2:30 – 6:00pm. The doctors will have seen the results and the receptionist can advise you appropriately.

Test results can take from 4 to 7 days to come back.

Our reception staff are not qualified to comment on results, and will only be able to provide you with information we have provided for them to tell the patient.

Please note that we 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.

Numerous appointments have been wasted by patients making an appointment before checking that the results have returned, so please check with reception first.

Tests that have returned normal results can be given by the receptionist; otherwise you will be advised to contact the doctor or nurse to discuss any further action.

Remember it is your responsibility to contact the surgery for the results, not our responsibility to contact you.

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.
