When you attend for a test of any kind you will be told how long you should expect to wait for the results. Please bear this in mind and call the surgery once sufficient time has elapsed, this is normally 5 - 7 working days.
Our reception staff are not qualified to interpret the results other than to advise you that they have been seen by the doctor and any comments that may have been made by your GP. Your GP may ask you to book a follow up appointment at your initial consultation, if not you may be contacted by the surgery if the doctor feels that they wish to see you again.
You can also register to view your test results on line via Patient Access and the application form can be downloaded by clicking on the Appointments heading in the options bar at the top of the page.
Please ring for results after 2pm.
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.
