Urine and other test samples must be received at the surgery before 2.00pm.
The results of all pathology tests requested by a GP/Nurse will be sent back to the surgery by way of an electronic report and the Doctor will check the results. If there are any problems and/or we need to discuss the results further with you, a comment to this effect will be added to your computerised medical record. Patients should therefore contact the Surgery approximately one week after the test and ask the Receptionist for your test result. Any comments added by the Doctor will also be conveyed to you. PLEASE TELEPHONE THE SURGERY AFTER 2.00PM, MONDAY TO FRIDAY when the telephones are less busy and the receptionist has more time to find the result.
All patients' records on file or held on the computer are confidential. In order to maintain confidentiality, all test results will only be given to patients themselves or to parents of minors if appropriate.
If you think you may be pregnant, you will need to do a home pregnancy test to confirm this before you see the doctor.
