When you attend for a test of any kind you will be told how long you should expect to wait for the results.
If you have online access to your records you could view your results by accessing your account. Once the doctor has seen your results there will be a comment next to them advising you make an appointment if any abnormality has been detected. Otherwise, will state " Normal"
The Practice will contact you if needed. If you are not contacted within a week of your blood test the result had been classed as Normal. If you are still concerned, please, phone the surgery to check. Please, avoid the mornings as lines are more busy at that time.
The receptionist can only report results that have been authorised by the doctors. If you make an appointment with the doctor to discuss results of tests, please make sure it is the doctor who initiated them.
*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.
