When you are sent for a test by your GP please ask him/her at the time when you should contact the Surgery for the results. It may not always be necessary for you to make an appointment to receive the results; you may receive a letter or a telephone call. Your GP will advise you.
If you are asked to telephone the receptionist for your results, or you would like to know if we have received them, please telephone the surgery after 2.00pm if at all possible at this avoids the busy period in the morning when patients are booking appointments.
Please be aware, in order to maintain confidentiality we can only give results to patients themselves, or to the parents/guardians of children.
If your test is taken at a hospital, please telephone the relevant hospital department in order to get the results, as these results can take some time to get to the practice.
