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 call the surgery after 10:00 once sufficient time has elapsed.
Our reception staff are not qualified to comment on results therefore it is your responsibility to make any necessary follow-up arrangements. Your results can be given to you by one of our Practice Nurses on duty, you will need to call Reception and ask if you can be put on the Nurses call-back list and supply a valid telephone number where you can be contacted during that day. Alternatively, you may be sent a letter from the Doctor asking you to make an 0appointment to review your results and be offered further advice/treatment if appropriate.
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.
