Please note that it is the responsibility of the patient to phone the surgery for test results.
If you have been told by the doctor to telephone the surgery for test results, please ring after 15:00. The receptionist may be able to tell you the result or ask you to make an appointment to discuss them with the doctor.
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. It is also practice policy only to give results to patients over 16 or to parents of those below that age.
Specimens are sent to the hospital every weekday.
If you are asked to bring a specimen on those days please ensure that we receive it before 16:00. If the surgery is closed, please do not post specimens through the letterbox
