The results of tests carried out during hospital visits are not normally sent to the practice. The easiest way to obtain your test results is to sign up to view your medical record online using the NHS App, as shown below. You may also telephone the practice after 2pm to obtain your results.
We may also contact you by telephone, text or letter about your results. Please ensure we have up to date contact details for you.
Results for patients over 16 years of age can only be given directly to the patient.
Please remember that Reception staff can only act in accordance with the GPs’ instructions, so may not be able to give you full details of a result over the telephone. This does not necessarily mean there is a problem, but simply that the GP would like to talk to you to explain the whole situation.
