Test Results

Please call 01784 465229 after 11am for results of any tests.

Our reception team does not have access to detailed test information and are not qualified to give you medical advice and in this respect can only tell you if your results are normal or if you need to discuss them with the doctor.  If you want to discuss a test result your GP would be happy to do this with you over the phone.

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. (see chart below)

If a test result requires further action we will contact you. 

If all tests are normal for you we would not routinely contact you but please call us for your results to be sure they have been received.  

Please note: We do not automatically get the results of tests organised by a hospital consultant
