We are trying to improve the ways you can receive your test results. We hope to have some results available for you online/using this website.
Please note, we request that you do not assume that a result is normal if we do not contact you. The surgery will contact you if there is a significant problem with your results, but please contact us for all results as the GP may have made some suggestions or advice based on your results even if there is not a significant problem.
You can also telephone the Surgery 1 week after you have had a test for your results.
Please note that if you have had a recent test and your results indicate that you need follow up care your GP will contact you directly. If you require a copy of your results please telephone reception and they will prepare a copy of your results for collection.
Patient confidentiality: It is necessary for you to provide signed authorisation if someone else is to collect medical information on your behalf.
