Be sure to ask your doctor or nurse how you may obtain the results to your tests when they ask you to provide samples. Most samples are taken as a routine measure and the surgery would only contact you if the doctor wishes to discuss matters further with you. Some test results may be available over the telephone or at the reception desk if the doctor has indicated that this is appropriate. You can also access your test results online if you have signed up for access to your medical records using Patient Access.
Laboratory specimens (in appropriate containers and labelled with your full name, date of birth and the date, please) must be handed in before 3.00pm Monday to Friday only.
