Patients are advised that it is their responsibility to follow up any investigations undertaken. Results of routine tests are normally available within two working days (some tests, such as cervical screening results or specialised blood tests, may take up to a week). Our administrative staff are able to provide you with the doctor’s comments but we ask that you ring after 10am so that our staff have time to assist you with this information.
Results can only be given to the patient whose name appears on the test unless they are a minor. For patient privacy, our staff will need to check the identity of the caller by confirming certain information.
Our administrative staff are not medically trained to interpret results, but are happy to provide you with the doctor’s notations. If you require further information or you have a query regarding the information you are provided with, you may need to make an appointment to discuss with your doctor.
