We will only give test results to the patient who had them. Reception staff are allowed to tell you that a result has been marked as normal or not requiring action, but they cannot discuss them in any more detail than this. If the doctor asked to see you after the test had been done, please keep your appointment, even if the result is normal.
Please try and phone in the afternoon between 3-6pm when it is less busy.
Do not be alarmed if you are told that the doctor wants to see you to discuss your results – this does not normally mean that there is something seriously wrong!
We will always tell you if we need to see you urgently.
