We do not contact every patient with the result of each test.
Unless there is a reason for the doctor to contact you, your GP will ask for the result to be filed in your electronic notes.
Our reception and administration staff are not qualified to interpret results and will only tell you the information authorised by the doctor. If you wish to discuss your result in detail, you will need to speak to a practice nurse or your GP.
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.
On-line access to your records
You can have on-line access to your detailed coded medical records and this enables you to view your test results. Just ask reception to set you up and they will give you a login and password.
