The practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. 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.
We normally expect the results of blood tests to be available one week after the test is taken. Occasionally some tests can take longer than this. In order to ensure that we can always contact you by letter, it is VERY IMPORTANT that we hold your current address. Please inform us at the earliest opportunity of any change of address.
It is the patient’s responsibility to call the surgery 7 days after having a blood test or X-ray to obtain the result. DO NOT assume we will contact you about your results.
