BY TELEPHONE: PLEASE CALL AFTER 14:00 PM FOR TEST RESULTS
BY PATIENT ACCESS ONLINE: RESULTS WILL BE AVAILABLE ONCE THE DOCTOR HAS REVIEWED THEM
Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.
If you have registered for and requested access to your medical records via Patient Access you will be able to see laboratory test results with the Doctor’s comment.
When you take your test you will be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice.
It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if you are advised to do so.
PLEASE DO NOT ASK THE RECEPTIONIST TO TAKE SAMPLES THAT HAVE NOT BEEN REQUESTED BY A DOCTOR OR NURSE. IF YOU FEEL YOU NEED A SAMPLE TESTED, ALL PATIENTS MUST have this authorised by a doctor or nurse. This is to ensure clinical safety and that the appropriate test and treatment is given to the patient. It is not safe for us to do this without a clinical need.
