Please hand laboratory specimens into reception before 12.30 pm on weekdays.
The results of most blood tests, urine tests and x-rays can be given over the telephone. To maintain confidentiality results will only be given to the patients themselves, or to parents of children.
Please call after 11.30am for results. Some may require further discussion with a doctor or nurse, either over the telephone or in a surgery consultation.
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. Please note, for example, that we will not give results to a spouse without explicit permission from the patient.
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.
