The doctor or nurse who requests the test will check your results when they are received from the lab. We would only contact you if further action was needed (e.g. change to medication) or if the doctor wishes to see you. If you have not heard from us within 10 days of the test then feel free to ring the surgery to confirm that the results were indeed normal.
If the tests are carried out in hospital, it is the responsibility of the consultant looking after you to advise you of the results. They will write to us if further action needs taken and we will then get in touch with you. Always make sure we have your correct contact details, especially your telephone number.
Please note that we do have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. In this respect we will only give out results to the person they relate to unless that person has given prior permission for their release or if they are not capable of understanding them.
