Test results

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

Please note that patients are only contacted if the results of any tests undertaken highlight abnormalities which require further investigation or if the clinician requests further or repeat tests.

It is not the practice’s policy to contact every patient whose results come back as normal.  Patients can contact the practice about test results if they haven’t been contacted by us, for their own satisfaction and in these cases, normal results are shared with the patient.

Please call after 10.00am to enquire about your test results as our reception staff will have more time to deal with your request.

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.
