Patients who do not have a follow up appointment with the doctor or nurse may contact the practice nurse to discover the result of their tests. Results may take 2 working days or longer to come back to the surgery. The nurse will aim to call you back the same day and may refer patients on to a doctor if necessary.
If your consultant or hospital has asked you to have blood tests carried out at the practice, please obtain a copy of the results from the practice before you attend your next hospital appointment. These will not be sent to the hospital automatically.
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.
