It is important that you make sure you receive the results of any investigations or tests done. The results of most tests carried out at the surgery are now text directly to your mobile phone. Please note:
You will often receive more than one text as one blood test can give many results. These are not duplicate texts.
You may get separate texts each time a result arrives at the Surgery and is looked at by a Clinician.
Some test results arrive from the laboratory quicker than others so there may be gaps between your text results.
The text will advise you if any action is required. You may be asked to contact the surgery to discuss the results with a member of our clinical staff.
If you haven’t heard from us with your test results within 1 week or you do not have a mobile phone, please contact reception after 10am. Please ensure that we have your up to date personal details and mobile phone number. It is your responsibility to let us know if you change those details so that we can update our records.
If you are asked to bring a sample into the surgery, please ensure you bring it in by 12 noon as the samples are collected by the hospital and samples brought in after this time may have missed the daily collection.
