The practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. We will only release test results to the person to whom they relate, unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or if they are not capable of understanding the results.
When tests are taken in the surgery you will be advised that there is no requirement to contact the practice for your results. Blood test results are normally available to the practice within a few days. X-ray results take a bit longer, normally 7 - 10 days. Test results are reviewed by the doctors and the surgery will contact you if any further action is required.
For tests carried out in hospital please contact the department/clinic secretary for results.
