Please check the results of any blood tests and doctors' comments on the test results online if you have Emis access or call the surgery, for the same, as below. Remember some blood tests take longer to arrive and calling earlier might mean false reassurance that they are fine. Please be aware that we do not call patients to advise about normal results and also about abnormal ones if no immediate action is needed. We do make every attempt to contact you in case of abnormality needing further action so ensure that your contact details are up to date when having any investigation done. Thank you for your assistance.
When you are telephoning for the results of tests it would assist the staff if you could telephone between 12.00pm and 2.30pm.
