Please call from 10am-12pm or 2pm-4pm 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.

When you take your test, you will be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice. It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with a Doctor if you are advised to do so.
