When you attend for a test of any kind you will be told how long you should expect to wait for the results.

We will contact you if further action is required. You will not be contacted if your result is normal. If you wish to enquire about the results of your tests, this can be done online using our online services.

If the test was arranged by your hospital consultant
If your test has been carried out at a Clinic or Hospital please call the Clinic or Hospital for the result, as we may not have the results and we cannot action tests which have been requested by other Clinicians outside the practice. If the consultant’s secretary or colleague inform you they will send the results to your GP, explain that you want the results from the specialist who arranged them who is in by far the best place to give appropriate advice. Please note, any test carried out at a Clinic or Hospital will not be visible in your online record.

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.
