When you take your test you will be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice. It is normally at least one week from the day of the test. If after this time you have not yet heard from the practice, but still have the same problem, please call the surgery after 11am.
You can also check your test results online if you have registered for online access to medical records. (registration forms available at reception).
You will hear from the surgery if your test result is abnormal. If we need to contact you regarding your results we will send a text message or call you. Please make sure your contact details are kept up to date.
Our reception staff are not qualified to comment on results. However they are able to tell you the comments made by your doctor about the results, and any instructions you need to follow. If you need any further clarification please request a telephone appointment with the requesting GP.
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.
