Hospital Tests & Results
We will contact you if there is any abnormality in any test. Please allow a few days before calling in the afternoon for results. These will be given to you after a doctor has dealt with them.
Requests for tests not discussed with a GP or requested by a hospital, must be made in writing. You may need to make an appointment with the GP to discuss relevant health issues. Tests will not always be granted if it is deemed unnecessary.
All Specimens for the Hospital should be handed in by midday, Mon-Fri.
Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and 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 they are not capable of understanding the results.
When you take your test you will be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice. It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if your are advised to do so.
