Please telephone the surgery on 01332 203787 between 1.00pm and 4.00pm Mon - Fri if you wish to know whether your test results are back. When you take your test you will be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice. The majority of test results normally take 2 - 5 days to come back to the practice with the exception of cervical screening results which can take up to 14 days.
Whilst the receptionists are unable to advise you of your test results, they can let you know if the results have arrived at the surgery. Your GP will review the results and determine if any further action is required before adding the results to your records. Should you require follow up you will be contacted by the practice or as determined by the clinician at your previous appointment. It remains your responsibility to make any necessary follow-up appointment with the doctor.
Please note that we do have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. In this respect we will only give out results to the person they relate to unless that person has given prior permission for their release or if they are not capable of understanding them.
