Patients can access their test results using Online services where they can print off anything in their medical records. Reception staff are happy to help with any queries regarding test results but please be aware they are not clinically trained to offer advice.
When you attend for a test of any kind you will be told how long you should expect to wait for the results. Please bear this in mind and call the surgery after 10:00 once sufficient time has elapsed.
Tests done at the Hospital take longer for the result. We ask that patients wait at least 10 days after having a procedure at the hospital to get the results. Time needs to be taken for the hospital to look at the results and forward them to the Practice, this can take a number of days.
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.
