Test Results Request
If you have had a blood, urine or x-ray test it is important to check with us for the result. The doctors check the results before the receptionists are able to give any information. If the outcome of the test result needs a prescpription, telephone conversation, or an appointment with the doctor, the surgery will get in touch with you by phone or letter.
Please telephone after 14:00 when the results line will be available to deal with such enquiries.
