We will normally only communicate test results to patients if there is an abnormality in the results. Results will normally be known to the Practice within five working days.
To ensure confidentiality, we only release results to the patient, unless alternative arrangements have been agreed in writing.
Referral requests are made promptly following a consultation with your doctor. The time to receive a response to the referral can vary considerably. The referral appointment will normally be posted to you by the hospital directly.
Should you feel that a test result or a referral appointment is overdue, please feel free to contact our secretarial team between 8.30 a.m. and 10.30 a.m. The telephone numbers for the secretaries are on the Patient Information tab.
