We advise that you contact the Surgery one week later in person or by telephone after 2pm Monday - Friday to be advised of any test results.
Our reception staff are not qualified to comment on results therefore it is your responsibility to check them and make any necessary follow-up appointment with the doctor.
Please note that we do have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. In this respect we will only give out results to the person they relate to unless that person has given prior permission for their release or if they are not capable of understanding them.
We have been reviewing the potential use of text messaging to communicate test results to patients. Consultation with our clinical system supplier has not satisfied us that the process would be clinically acceptable at present. Your care is paramount to us and hence we have decided to delay implementation of any text service until we are completely satisfied with the system capabilities. We apologise for any inconvenience or confusion caused. Patients should continue to call the surgery one week later.
