Tests and Results




When you attend for a test of any kind you will be told how long you should expect to wait for the results. Once the results are back they are actioned by the GP.  If your result needs any urgent action you will be contacted by the surgery.  

Our reception staff are not qualified to comment on results unless they have been seen by a GP first.  Once the results have been actioned by the GP they will add a comment to the results and it is this information that the reception staff can relay back to you as the patient.  Please do not ask the reception team for any further information in relation to results. 

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.
