For test results for example, blood test results or x-ray results please telephone the surgery after 2.00pm.
If your GP/Nurse wishes to speak to you regarding your result the receptionist will book you a convenient telephone consultation. We have specific appointments reserved for results both in a morning and an afternoon and the receptionist will offer you the next available appointment with the GP/Nurse who requested the test. The GP/Nurse always indicates on the result a timescale in which to speak to them, for example something which needs discussing quickly will be marked "within the week". Something routine "within 3 weeks".
