All our patients booking blood tests are encouraged to book an appointment at the surgery a week or so later to be informed of the results. However if you wish to speak to someone about your test please phone the surgery after midday as our staff will have more time to help you at this time. It might be that the doctor/nurse will have to call you back at the end of surgery. Please note that reception staff are not qualified to issue patients with results.
You will be told how long you should expect to wait for the results at the time of your test so please bear this in mind before calling. It is then 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.
