Test results will only be given by the Doctor or Nurse to the person who had the test. You are welcome to ring the surgery to find out if your results are back, but the results will not be given by the receptionist. Medical staff will make all efforts to inform of abnormal reports. Please note that because of confidentiality the report will only be given to the patient. You will be advised to contact the surgery one week (5 days) after having your test to check if the test result is back. We will not ring you if your test is normal. We will only ring you if your test has come back as abnormal and you will be advised accordingly.
