Some test results are ready in a few days; other can take much longer. Please check with the doctor when you will learn the result.
If the doctor feels that it is necessary to see you again or that further action is required as a result of the test, we will notify you either by phone or letter.
If you still wish to enquire about a test result please ring the surgery late morning onwards when it is less busy and let the receptionist know the specific test result that you require.
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.
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.
