The results of your laboratory tests, i.e. bloods, urines, x-rays etc, are available each day by telephoning the surgery on 816 71211 between 14:00 - 16:00. Most results are available the next day so please do not delay in contacting us. Cervical cytology (smear) results can take up to 6 weeks to return.
All patient records on file or in the computer are confidential. In order to maintain confidentiality, laboratory results and x-ray results will only be given to patients themselves or to parents of minor where appropriate.
It is the patients own responsibility to ring for test results. Patients with any abnormal medical test result requiring further investigations, treatment or discussion with the doctor, will be contacted directly by the practice staff either to make an appointment or have a telephone consultation with the doctor / nurse (as appropriate).
We have a daily service to the hospital laboratory and all specimens are collected at 13:00. Please ensure that specimens are clearly labelled with your name and date of birth and place them in the flap in the treatment room door.
