Results ~ If you would like to enquire about test results, please phone surgery and the reception staff will inform you if the doctor requires a follow-up appointment to discuss these results. Results take between 2-14 working days depending on complexity. Attempts are made by staff to arrange follow up appointments for abnormal test results. However, we do encourage patients to call to check that their results do not require any follow up with their doctor.
Contacting the Doctor ~ As you are aware our Doctors have a very busy schedule. If you need to phone the doctor you may leave a message with our reception staff and the doctor will return your call when available. Alternatively, you may speak with one of our practice nurses who may provide the information you require. If the matter is urgent please let the reception staff know at the time of calling. No appointments or results can be made/given via email. Electronic communication is generally reserved for commercial business.
