We hope the following FAQ's may help with enquiries you may have with regard to recent tests and results:
Please telephone for your results approximately 1 week after the tests were taken, we cannot telephone all our patients to give results.
The reception is only a message provider. They are not clinically trained to interpret results so please do not be offended when you are given a basic response.
Should you wish to discuss the result with your usual Dr please either make an appointment or arrange to speak to them on the telephone.
If you still have symptoms please do not be afraid to say so as it may be further tests are required or investigations. Book another appointment with your usual doctor.
We welcome feedback from patients and try to improve our service appropriately.
