If there is a significant abnormality your doctor will contact you. If you don't hear anything, that may be because the results are normal or your doctor has organised a follow up appointment.

You are welcome to ring the surgery on 01395 441212 and our receptionists can confirm the results are normal and leave a copy of the results for you at reception.

Occasionally there are slight abnormalities in some of the readings which will mean that the safest thing to do is to repeat the test sometime later - perhaps some months later. We will contact you with information with regard to the abnormality and why we wish to follow it up.

Please note our reception staff are only allowed to pass on information as described in the notes by your doctor and are not permitted nor qualified to pass on any opinion of their own.

For patients who have registered for our online service you will be able to request access to your results online.  Please ask to speak with one of our receptionists who will be happy to assist you.
