We are trying to improve the ways you can receive your test results.
Please note, 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.
To ensure confidentiality, we only release results to the patient, unless alternative arrangements have been agreed in writing.
If you would like to receive your results by text message, please give your mobile number to reception. We encourage you to do this as you will receive your results faster.
