Test Results

Please contact the surgery after 10.00am to obtain the results of tests or x-rays.  There is no need to make an appointment with the doctor unless they have requested that you do so.  For reasons of confidentiality test results can only be given to the patient themselves or to the parent or legal guardian of children under 16 years.  For similar reasons the results of pregnancy tests are only given in person and not over the phone.  Normal results can be give out over the phone by practice staff.  Our receptionists are not trained to recognise whether an abnormal result is significant or not and if in doubt will ask you to discuss this with a doctor.

It is important to note that it is your responsibility to contact the practice for test results.  It is not routine for the practice to contact patients even when test results are abnormal.
