Please call after 2pm to enquire about your test results as our reception staff will have more time to deal with your request.
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.
If the results require urgent attention, you will be notified. A member of our administrative team will be able to tell you either that your results are normal or that the doctor will discuss them with you at your next routine visit. Occasionally, you may be asked to phone your GP after surgery to discuss your results.
Administrative staff do not have access to further information and are not qualified to give medical advice. If you are worried, please speak to your doctor.
Please be aware that reception staff are required to open confidential letters to assess their urgency
