For reasons of confidentiality the practice does not generally give test results over the telephone. 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. This applies only to a patient with whom the doctor has agreed specifically to give results in this way.
Your doctor will inform you at the time that a test is requested how the results will be passed to you and how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice. We are happy to send results by text message if this is agreed with the doctor or nurse when s/he requests the test for you.
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.
