You will be advised if your results have been documented as normal. If your results are not normal, you are advise you and arrange an appointment for you to see the doctor
Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we will only release test results to the person to whom they relate. If the person is not capable of understanding their test results for some reason, an appointment will be booked for them with a doctor or nurse with an interpreter. When you take your test you will be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice.
It is each patient’s responsibility to check their results have come back and to make an appointment to discuss them with a doctor or nurse if advised to do so.
We have a weekly Advocate session which is currently held on Monday and Friday mornings from 8am-10.40am with a Bengali interpreter. The advocate is available ad hoc for patients for the walk-in service and booked appointments.
We also have full access to an interpreting service; however, some languages require 1 week’s prior notice. Patients are asked to request an interpreter for their appointment through our reception staff.
