When you attend for a test of any kind you will be told how long you should expect to wait for the results. Please bear this in mind and call the surgery in the afternoon once sufficient time has elapsed.
Our reception staff are not qualified to comment on results therefore it is your responsibility to check them and make any necessary follow-up appointment with the clinician.
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.
All specimens must be provided in a suitable container and marked clearly with name, date of birth and a date and reason for the specimen.
