GETTING TEST RESULTS

Test results cannot be given to any person other than the patient unless we have received written consent. When you telephone for a result you will be asked for your full name and date of birth. This will prevent the staff giving the wrong test results.

Results take some times to come back to the Practice. The box below indicates a rough guide to the length of time that results reach the surgery.

Please note that any tests, which have been requested by hospital doctors, do not automatically come back to the practice.
