To attend a test of any kind, a GP or Specialist Department Clinician would have to approve this first. The Surgery must be in receipt of the approval if a Specialist has requested this. It can take three days to reach the Surgery. You will need to phone the Surgery to book the test. When you attend your test, you will be told how long you should expect to wait for the results. The test results can be requested by completing an eConsult using the Admin selection box. If you unable to access eConsult, please phone the Surgery on 01440 841300.
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.
