Please ensure that you obtain the results of tests by telephoning the surgery. Laboratory results are usually within seven days. Cytology results are available between two and six weeks while hospital consultation results are usually available three to four weeks later. Radiology results organised by the practice are generally available within two to four weeks.
These results are usually available with easy access for the administration staff and can be given out directly. On some occasions the staff have to consult the doctor and you may have to be asked to call back but we do endeavour to keep this to a minimum.
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.
