At the time of consultation you will be fully informed about the test ordered for you. Patients are then able to call the practice for their results (unless a follow up appointment has been requested), which may be given by reception staff with the doctor’s permission, or by the relevant GP.

Doctors will contact you with clinically significant results if a follow up appointment has not yet been arranged.

Privacy obligations will be adhered to and results will not be given to a third party without patient permission.
