Most blood and urine results are now sent to the practice from the hospital by computer links rather than by post. Most will be back within 48 hours. X-ray results and hospital letters are sent by the internal mail and take a variable time to arrive.
All results and letters have to be seen and checked by a doctor before being filed or passed on. For your test results please telephone the surgery after 15.00 on 01228 791328. Sometimes, we cannot always give full results over the phone. If the result is complicated, or if the doctor wants to see you about the result, we will offer you an appointment.
Please note that we do have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. In this respect we will only give out results to the person they relate to unless that person has given prior permission for their release or if they are not capable of understanding them.
