We are trying to improve the ways you can receive your test results. Please use this form to request your results.
You can also telephone the surgery between 11:00 and 13:00 or between 15:00 and 18:00 and select Test Results.
We request that you do not assume that a result is normal if we do not contact you. The surgery will contact you if there is a significant problem with your results, but please contact us for all results as the GP may have made some suggestions or advice based on your results even if there is not a significant problem.
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.
