When you attend for a test of any kind you will be told how long you should expect to wait for the results. Please bear this in mind and only call the surgery after sufficient time has elapsed.
X-rays and MRI take significantly longer and can be longer for us to get the reports back so please be patient.
It is your responsibility to contact us to get your test results and make any necessary follow up appointment with the doctor, however we will contact you if the results are abnormal. Please also understand that our reception staff are not clinically trained to read test results and will therefore only be able to give you the GP's filing comment.
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.
Please also note that if you have online access, you will be able to view your test results online. If you do not have online access please ask at reception and we will issue you with an online password.
