Your Test Results
You may ring the surgery for the results of tests after 10am but please remember the following points:
- Results can only be given to the specific patient to whom they apply. In the interest of confidentiality please be prepared to identify yourself. Please do not phone for results for friends or relatives unless we hold written authority to discuss their case with you. We hope you will be understanding in this matter but we do not have a great deal of discretion in this area.
- You will need to know the specific test results that you require. Some tests take longer than others to process. If you have had several tests then the receptionist will not necessarily know whether all the results are back unless you can identify them.
- Please do not expect the receptionist to have any medical knowledge. They are instructed only to tell you if your test is indicated as normal. If any test is abnormal, requires further discussion or needs further interpretation then we can refer the matter to your Doctor.
