Please call after 11:00 to enquire about your test results as our reception staff will have more time to deal with your request.
Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.
When you take your test you will be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice.
It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if your are advised to do so.
All blood, urine and other samples are collected daily at 14:30 and taken to the pathology department at Great Western Hospital.
Samples must be delivered to the hospital on the day of collection and therefore appointments to have samples taken must be prior to 14:30.
Samples collected at home must be named and dated, and handed to reception by 14:30 in the bag provided.
