When you attend for a test of any kind the GP or nurse will be able to advise you how long it will take for the practice to receive the results.When the practice receives test results the GP/nurse decides if any further action is required. If you need a prescription, an appointment or any further tests, we will contact you to advise you. You do not need to contact the surgery. If however you want to phone for your results, please only call the surgery after the time suggested by the GP, nurse or receptionist.
Our reception staff are not qualified to interpret or comment on results. They are only able to read out your results and the GP/nurses comments.
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.
