It can take up to 2 weeks for results of X-rays to become available and blood tests are usually available in one week.
We ask all patients to call to find out the results of any tests done in surgery. By doing so, you can find out if any further management is required.
We will not normally receive letters regarding your hospital consultation for at least two weeks after your appointment. If you would like to discuss your hospital visit, any test result or recommended treatment, please telephone first to ensure this information is available. We are unable to take requests for medication from patients without written information from your hospital doctor, therefore if you are given any written guidance please bring it into the surgery.
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.
