We do not routinely phone patients when a test result comes in. However we will phone you to make an appointment if necessary to discuss the result or to advise you if your test result needs to be followed up in some other way.
If you have had a test and particularly want the result please phone and talk to the nurse in her phone time. We cannot give results to anyone other than the patient unless we have the written authority of the patient to release results to another person. Parents of children are the exception here.
Reception staff CAN NOT give you any results. Results are handled solely by the medical team.
