When you attend for a test of any kind you will be advised how long you should expect to wait for the results. You may be asked to make a follow-up appointment to discuss the results with your doctor or to ring reception. When ringing for results, please ring 0115 9737320, option 3 (preferably between 2Pm – 4pm) once sufficient time has elapsed.
Our reception staff are not qualified to comment on results therefore it is your responsibility to check them and make any necessary follow-up appointment with the doctor.
Please note that we do have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. In this respect we will only give out results to the person they relate to unless that person has given prior permission for their release or if they are not capable of understanding them.
Usually, results of tests ordered by a hospital doctor will go to them and not the practice so please be aware we may not be able to give you these results.
Some test results may be available to view on line in the next year.
Cervical smear results will be posted to you directly from the laboratory.
