Test results are not generally confirmed in writing. When contacting the surgery for test results please telephone between the hours of 2:00pm and 5:00pm and select option 3 for test results. Doctors do not usually start reading incoming test results until morning surgeries have finished.
We do not give pregnancy or other highly sensitive test results over the telephone. Results can only be confirmed to a representative of a patient if a consent form has been completed and handed in by a patient, or if the patient is being cared for by identified carer(s).
Please note you may be required to come into surgery for a result, or to make a follow-up appointment to see a doctor. Please always check with the member of staff performing a test as to how long the wait for results is likely to be, this will save unnecessary phone calls to obtain results.
