When you attend for a test of any kind you will be told how long you should expect to wait for the results.
It is your responsibility to telephone the surgery to find out the result of all tests we carry out.
Please bear this in mind and only call the surgery after sufficient time has elapsed. We do not give out results at our reception desk as this would breach patient confidentiality.
Our reception staff are not qualified to comment on results, they can only pass on any message the GP has left and if there is any follow-up appointment with the doctor required.
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.
