When you attend for a test of any kind you will be told how long you should expect to wait for the results.
Since our telephone lines are very busy in the early mornings, we politely ask you to telephone for test results (i.e. blood, urine, x-ray) and general enquiries between 2.30pm – 4.30pm avoiding Mondays and post Bank Holiday, as these tend to be our busiest days. Your co-operation in this matter is very much appreciated.
Our reception staff are not qualified to comment on results therefore it is your responsibility to check them and 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.
All specimens must be provided in a suitable container and marked clearly with name, date of birth and a date and reason for the specimen.
