TESTS AND RESULTS
Due to the large volume of test results that come into the surgery, we are unable to contact patients about normal or expected test results. Where clinically necessary, the Doctor will contact patients to discuss any unexpected or abnormal results to establish whether any further action is required.
Please note the Doctor may send you a text message with your results and advise you of the next steps should they feel this is necessary. Alternatively if you have online access you are able to view your results online using the NHS app, Patient access or Evergreen Life.
Please call between 2.00pm and 6.00pm to enquire about your test results as our reception staff will have more time to deal with your request between these times.
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 you are advised to do so.
Where a test has been requested by the hospital consultant or clinic, please contact them directly to discuss the result.
