Results over the phone
Results of smears, swabs, x-rays and blood tests are available by phone between 3:00pm – 6:00pm, for the patient only. Please note that results normally take one week to be notified to the Practice. It is the patient’s responsibility to follow-up on their test results.
Should I make an appointment to see a doctor?
The receptionist will let you know when you call for your test results whether the doctor has requested that you make a follow-up appointment. If no note has been left, you do not need to make one.
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.
