Results for most tests are available by telephone four days after sending them to the laboratory. Please ring the surgery after 2.00pm daily for test results.
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 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.
You may be asked by the doctor or nurse to provide a specimen for laboratory testing. Please ensure that you ask the receptionist for the correct container and make sure you put your name and date of birth on the container.
The completed specimen must be delivered to the surgery by 2:30pm the same day the sample is taken to send to the laboratory.
