GPs and Nurses will advise you which tests are to be taken and when the results are likely to be returned.
You can view your test results, once the doctor has checked them, using your online access. This is especially useful for patients who undergo regular testing and take their results with them to share with other health care professionals. If you don’t have access to your records and would like to know more, follow this link to the Online Services page.
Some patients are happy for the reception staff to hand over results once the doctor has checked them and is happy for these to be released. If you need to, please call between 2 and 4pm to see if your results have been received in the practice.
If the GP wishes to discuss the results, or you require further tests then they will advise the reception staff to book you the appropriate appointment. We advise patients to check the following website labtestsonline to get an understanding of any tests taken and what are considered to be normal results.
Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. 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.
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.
