When you undergo blood tests or X-rays, please ensure that you ask when the result will be available and from whom you should obtain the result.
If you telephone the surgery for results please call after 2pm. This helps to free up the telephone line for urgent appointments in the mornings.
If you make an appointment for the specific purpose of obtaining a test result, tell the receptionist so that she ensure we have the result back from the laboratory
In order to maintain confidentiality, test results will only be given to patients themselves, or parents of minors if appropriate, when satisfactory identification has been obtained by the receptionist.
