We know that you will be keen to get your test results as soon as possible but please allow at least 5 working days before contacting the practice concerning any test results unless otherwise instructed by one of our team.
Results of test such as x-rays, ultrasound, EEG, and tests done in outpatient clinic appointments may take a little longer.
If your test has been carried out at a clinic or hospital, please call the clinic or hospital for the result, as we cannot action tests which have been requested by other clinicians with the practice.
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.
We 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. (i.e. where there is written mandate from the patient).
