Please telephone the practice between 08:00 and 18.00 Monday to Friday to obtain the results for your investigations. You should telephone one week after the test has been carried out. The doctor will usually advise the receptionist of your results, allowing information to be passed to you over the telephone.
Sometimes the doctor may want to discuss your result with you and you may be asked to make an appointment.
Where appropriate the doctor may wish to speak to you by telephone. The reason for this is that some laboratory results are complicated to translate and are therefore better explained by your doctor.
Specimens may be left with the reception desk before 14.00 Monday to Friday. Please ensure that the specimen containers are properly labelled as investigations will not be carried out on unlabelled specimens. Some samples, eg urine and swabs are best taken in the morning.
