The practice reception team are unable to give any test results as they are not qualified to interpret results, they are only able to say if the results are back and any information the doctor has stated (ie to make an appointment or that there is a prescription ready for collection).
The doctors check the results each day, and act upon these.
For those patients who need further investigations or an appointment you will be contacted, if we are unable to contact you by phone then a letter will be sent.
For those patients whose results need no further action, you will not be contacted (this is due to the huge amount of results that the practice deals with on a daily basis). However if you wish to have your results you are welcome to ring the practice and a nurse will call you back within the next day or so with your results.
To ensure confidentiality, we only release results to the patient, unless alternative arrangements have been agreed in writing.
