You Doctor will advise on how you can obtain results of any tests that have been arranged for you.
When requested by the Doctor to make an appointment for a blood test, the receptionist will endeavour to arrange the appointment for the blood test and a further appointment with the Doctor, approximately one week after for you to get the results.
The result of your test is an important part of your treatment and it is essential that it is handled safely. Where feasible, the appointment for you results should be with the same Doctor who requested the test.
It will be made clear by the Doctor or Nurse how the result will be dealt with. Please DO NOT request your results from reception unless the Doctor has specifically requested you do so.
Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.
