If you have had a test in surgery (for instance, a blood test, or swab) it is essential that you contact reception after 2 weeks to check that all your results are back and to ask what your doctor has said about them. Results can sometimes go missing between surgery and lab so please never assume that no news means good news .
If you are telephoning please try to call between 15:00 - 17:00.
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 if asked to do so.
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.
