You can contact the reception team to request results by phoning 01522 751717.
Our staff are able to:
- Tell you whether a result is 'normal', 'satisfactory', 'borderline' or 'abnormal'. They can also read the result to you and give you specific values. Sometimes a doctor would prefer you find this information out from a doctor so they can explain the results fully to you. Please note, if a result is not available on the results line it does not necessarily mean it is bad news - just a doctor would like to explain things to you themselves.
- Confirm whether we have received a result. Please ring the results line to check that your result is back before booking an appointment to discuss the findings with the doctor who arranged this test. Results, for example for x-rays and ultrasounds, usually take around 3 weeks to reach us so checking that it is back first avoids wasting an appointment.
Results of tests are sent to the clinician who requested the test. If a specialist or another healthcare provider requested the test, the surgery will often find out after you do. Please phone the specialist's secretary directly to check.
