How to obtain test results

Test Results

Please try to telephone after 1pm for your test results as this is when the telephones are less busy. This will save you time in the telephone queue and enable us to book other patients in more quickly that need medical care on the day.

Prior to booking an appointment to discuss your results, please phone the surgery to check that your results have arrived to ensure we have all the information that you require when you come to see us.

When you phone for your results please be aware that the reception staff are not medically trained, they can only read out what the doctor has said when marking your results. If you have any questions regarding your results please see the doctor or nurse.

If a result is abnormal you will usually be notified by letter or telephone to either have the test repeated, to have other tests or asked to see the doctor or the nurse to discuss your result further
