Please phone after 2pm for all test results that have been requested by clinicians in the practice. A receptionist can tell you the advice that the doctor has given, i.e. normal result or you need to see a doctor.
Please remember that the receptionists can only act in accordance with the Doctor’s instructions so may not be able to give you the result. This does not necessarily mean that there is a problem but simply that the Doctor needs to see you or speak to you to explain the whole situation.
Results can only be given to someone other than the patient if previously arranged with the Doctor or we have had this instruction in writing.
The results of tests carried out during hospital visits are not normally sent to the practice and you should be informed of these by the hospital.
