PLEASE NOTE THAT NOT ALL TESTS ARE AVAILABLE ON THE NHS AND MAY HAVE TO BE PAID FOR. WE NEED TIME TO PREPARE COSTS FOR ANY PRIVATE TESTS SO THAT YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT AMOUNT YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY. WE WILL HAVE TO CONSULT THE LABORATORY FOR COSTS IF THE TEST YOU REQUIRE IS NOT ON THE LIST BELOW.
Since our telephones are very busy in the early morning, we would ask you to telephone for test results (eg blood, urine, x-ray) after 2.00 p.m.each day if at all possible.
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.
Our reception staff are not qualified to comment on results.
