Your Test Results
Patients can telephone the practice to obtain test results after 12.30pm each week day. Most results take one week to return to the practice.
All patients’ records are confidential. In order to maintain this confidentiality, laboratory and x-ray results will only be discussed with the patient themselves (or parent of minor where appropriate) when satisfactory identification has been established by the receptionist/nurse.
However, as our reception staff are not medically qualified to interpret test results, they will only be able to tell you whether or not the results are back from the laboratory and whether or not the doctor has asked to see you again regarding them. If you wish for further clarification on your test results, please ask for a telephone consultation with our nurse, who can discuss them further.
