For the results of tests obtained at the Health Centre we recommend waiting at least four working days before phoning for these, unless you have been told otherwise. Please phone between 1:30pm and 3:30pm when we have more staff available to assist you.
Our Reception staff are not qualified to comment on results therefore it is your responsibility to make any necessary follow-up appointment with the Clinician who requested them.
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.
If the test was arranged by your hospital consultant
If your test has been carried out at a Clinic or Hospital please call them directly for the result, as we cannot action tests which have been requested by other Clinicians out with the practice.
Information about your laboratory tests
