Where blood and other tests are found to be normal, we do not routinely inform patients. You are encouraged to contact us for results but do leave at least a week and call when we are less busy between 11 am and 3 pm, or e-mail us anytime.
Abnormal results will be followed up by our recall system. Should you be asked to see a clinician please make the appt with the person indicated; they will know what needs doing.
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.
