The practice has a strict policy regarding patient confidentiality and data protection.
If your results have been reported to us as normal, you will not be contacted by the surgery. However if you are still experiencing symptoms and would like to discuss the matter further please book a routine appointment.
If the doctor or nurse wishes to see you with the results of a recent test, the reception team will contact you either by telephone or in writing. This does not necessarily mean there is something wrong.
Test results will only be released to the person whom they relate to, unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this information or they are not capable of understanding the results.
Reception staff are not allowed to give out test result information, other than what they have been instructed by the GP. Please do not ask them to explain the results - they are not clinical and therefore are not trained to do this.
