If you wish to request results, please use our Test Results triage.
Generally you will be contacted via phone, letter, or text message if there is further action to be taken. Please do not assume that investigations are normal if you are not contacted.
All patients’ records in the files or on the computer are confidential. In order to maintain confidentiality, laboratory results will only be given to patients themselves, parents of minors if appropriate or carers/family with lasting power of attorney when the receptionists have obtained satisfactory identification. Sometimes, we cannot always give full results over the phone. If the result is complicated, or if the doctor wants to see you about the result, we will offer you an appointment.
As telephone lines are busiest during the mornings, please telephone for results between 15:00-18:30.
