Patients are welcome to ring for results of blood tests, smears, X-rays etc. You will normally be given an idea of how long they take to come back by the doctor or nurse. Blood tests and other samples usually take a week, and X-rays can take 2 weeks or longer. Please ring in the afternoon when the surgery is less busy.
Our reception staff are not qualified to comment on results therefore it is your responsibility to check them and make any necessary follow-up appointment with the doctor.
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.
