Test results can be given to the patient over the telephone, but note that early morning tends to be busiest. Wherever possible therefore, please ring in for test results and other information after 11:00am.
If the doctor or nurse in the practice takes the test, e.g. blood samples, they will inform you how many and what kind of tests have been taken, so it is clear how many results are to be obtained.
Please ensure you know how to obtain the result before leaving surgery.
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.
