We ask patients to telephone the practice for their results, although there may be times when the doctor may think it necessary to telephone you.

All results will be viewed by the doctor who will have commented on the result. Our reception staff are able to let you know the result and the doctor’s comment but are not clinically qualified to advise you further about this.

If you would like to discuss the results with your doctor, please ask the receptionist to book you an appointment.

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.
