The practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. We will only give test results to the patient named on the result.
Results would only be given to someone else if the patient has given prior permission for the result to be given to a named person or if the patient is not capable of understanding the results.
If you need to check blood/smear/x-ray results etc. please ring after 3:30pm when the telephone is less busy and the doctor has had time to review the results.
We ask that you wait 7 days before contacting the practice for your results.
Waiting too long for test results?
If you feel that you have been waiting longer than anticipated for results or reports from the hospital, please bring it to the attention of the reception team. They will contact the originator and try to obtain your results for you.
To assist you the receptionist will need to know:
- which hospital or service you attended
- who you saw or which department
- the date of your appointment
- the type of test/treatment you had
