Please note that the receptionist can only give results to patients once the Doctor has checked the results and given authorisation. In order to maintain patient confidentiality, results can only be given to the patient themselves. Parents of patients under 16 can request results on the child’s behalf.
Most blood, urine and swab tests take up to two weeks to be processed and completed by the laboratory, these are then sent back to the surgery for review by your clinicians. Our clinicians review these results everyday and make comments or actions. Patients are kindly asked to contact the surgery, after 2pm, two weeks after taking the test.
The receptionist will read back to you any comments that the clinicians have made and assist you with any follow up appointments, if required. If you have previously arranged a follow up appointment with your clinician you do not need to ring for the results.
