Test Results

We have no restrictions on what time you can telephone for a test result but please bear in mind that patients who are poorly call on a morning for a home visit.

Please call after 2pm to enquire about your test results as our reception staff will have more time to deal with your request between these times.

Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.

When you take your test you will be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice.

It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if your are advised to do so.

Ringing For Results

If you have investigations or tests carried out during a hospital attendance, it is their responsibility to inform you of the result.

We are responsible for tests and investigations done at our request.

We will try, where possible, to provide the result on behalf of the hospital if they are unable to, but results can take longer to reach the Practice. 

Please do not get upset with Staff if the result is not returned within the timescale suggested by the hospital.

If your test was carried out at the practice, please contact the practice after 5 working days.

Thank you for your co-operation
