Please call between 11:00 and 15:30 to enquire about your test results as our reception staff will have more time to deal with your request between these times.
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, this is usually one week.
Please understand that our reception staff are not medically qualified and so cannot answer any questions about your results. Our receptionists can only pass on to you the message recorded on your results report by the doctor. If the doctor needs to see or speak to you urgently regarding any test results, you will be contacted by the surgery. In all other cases, it is the patient's responsibility to contact the surgery to obtain laboratory test results. You may be advised to make an appointment with your GP to discuss the results.
For other samples, such as urine, stool / faeces and sputum tests, containers can be obtained from reception. Please hand laboratory specimens into reception before 2.00 pm on weekdays, making sure you have clearly labelled the specimen with your name, date of birth and the day the sample was taken. These will then be sent to the laboratory for testing.
