If you are requesting the results of tests or investigations, please try to call between 2 and 3p.m. as the lines are less busy at this time. Receptionists are not permitted to give out test results. They will inform the Patient if the results have been received by the Surgery and pass on any information that the Doctor wishes the Patient to know.
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. It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your Doctor if your are advised to do so.
