We have access to a wide array of Diagnostic Tests such as Blood tests, Urine tests, cardiac ECGs, Lung Function tests, Bowel screens, X Rays

and Diagnostic Scans.

Receiving Test Results ? –  If your doctor organises a Test for you, please ensure that you understand ” the How and the When”  you are going to receive the test result (before you leave the surgery).

Test Results likely Normal ? – usually, we Text Normal, or non significant, results, directly to your phone (via SMS messaging), or, our Practice Nurse may Phone or contact you.

Test Results possibly Abnormal ? – Abnormal test results are best followed up with a further GP appointment.

a. Your doctor will often suggest booking a follow up appointment, soon after the test is done.

b. Occasionally, your doctor or Practice Nurse may Phone you, to discuss the abnormal result, or text you to suggest attending for a further appointment.

We feel it is important that patients receive results of all investigations, unless otherwise discussed with your doctor.

Test Results not received within a week ? – If not, please phone our Practice Nurse (afternoons, between 2 to 3 pm).

Sometimes results are delayed or, very rarely, go missing.

Do please Follow up with us – if you have not received your result. This ensures we can avoid tests going missing or not being acted upon.
