Patients who have had a blood test/X-ray can contact the practice 5 days later for their results. Please bear this in mind and call after 12 noon.
Our reception staff are not qualified to comment on results therefore it is your responsibility to make any necessary follow-up arrangements. Your results can be given to you by one of our on-call duty doctors. You will need to call Reception and ask if you can be put on the doctor's call-back list and supply a valid telephone number on which you can be contacted during that day. Alternatively, you may be sent a letter from the doctor asking you to make an appointment to review your results and be offered further advice/treatment if appropriate.
If your consultant or hospital has asked you to have blood tests carried out at the practice, please obtain a copy of the results from the practice before you attend your next hospital appointment. These will not be sent to the hospital automatically.
Please note that we have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. In this respect we will only give out results to the patient they relate to unless that person has given prior permission for their release or if they are not capable of understanding them.
