Access to Test Results and Hospital Letters

When you have your test you will be told approximately how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice. Please check online, check your texts or ring the practice between 11:00am and 1:00pm to see if your results are back. Although we will endeavour to contact you if an urgent problem is detected, it is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if you are advised to do so. We process too many tests each day to be able to contact everyone about their individual result

Online Services

We encourage all patients over the age of 18 to use our online service to access your test results and your hospital letters. This will help to ensure that you are kept informed and able to actively manage your own health Please discuss this with your doctor the next time you have an appointment at the surgery

Please share your mobile phone number with us to receive a text update when your test results are back and also to use our text appointment reminder and cancellation service

Contact The Surgery

If you prefer to telephone, please call between 11am and 1pm to enquire about your test results, as our reception staff will have more time to deal with your request between these times

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
