The practice carries out hundreds of laboratory tests on patients each week. It is vitally important that patients contact us for these results to make sure they are fully informed and that nothing serious is missed.
The person doing the test will tell the patient when to contact the surgery for the result, most taking just a few days to come back. We will only give results to someone other than the patient if you (the patient) give your written consent to us, children under 12 excepted.
Do not assume all is well because we did not contact you with the result, you must call to find out for yourself. It is the patient's responsibility to make sure the you are informed of any test results.
Please telephone for results between 11:00 and 17:00 Monday to Friday. Results telephone number is 0345 337 1150 - Option 3
