Test results and letters from local hospitals have to be checked by the doctor. You do not need to contact the practice for results, we will contact you if any follow up action is required. Some tests take longer than others. The clinician performing the test should be able to give you an idea of how long you are likely to wait.
Our reception staff are not qualified to comment on results therefore. 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, if they can provide 3 patient identifiers such as Date or Birth or NHS number, or if they are not capable of understanding them.
