Getting Results Via Phone
If you have registered your current mobile phone number with us you will receive a text asking you to book a results call with the GP if we need to discuss a result with you. Results calls can be booked in advance and the GP will call you on the day of your choice between 11.30am to 2.00pm. Same day results calls are available by calling the surgery at 9.00am. Appointments cannot be booked for same day calls before 9.00am. Same day calls are very limited and are booked on a first come first serve basis.
Please understand that our receptionists are not medically qualified and so cannot answer any questions about your results.
Getting Results Online
Test results can also be viewed using your online services such as the NHS App or Patient Access. Only normal test results will appear on your online services account to start with. Once you have discussed any abnormal results with a clinician, these will then be able to be viewed online.
