Wherever possible, please telephone during the afternoon for all test results, as this is the period when the telephone lines and administrative staff are least busy and so best able to help.
General Information about Test Results
Please remember that the staff can only act in accordance with the Doctor's instructions so may not be able to give you a result. This does not necessarily mean that there is a problem but simply that the Doctor needs to see you or talk to you to explain the whole situation.
Results can be given to someone other than the patient if previously arranged with Doctor.
The results of tests carried out during hospital visits are not normally sent to the practice.
Results for patients over 16 years old can only be given to the patient.
