Flu Clinics will be a different this year, due to COVID-19. Please remember:

  • Do not attend if you are unwell, especially if you have a new continuous cough, a fever or anosmia (loss of taste/smell).
  • Maintain social distancing of 2m as per guidelines for healthcare.
  • Patients of the same household that fit into the same category (over 65 years) can attend and queue together.
  • Wear a mask or face covering, unless you have an exemption.
  • Wear loose fitting clothing.
  • Toilet facilities will be closed, please go before you attend!
  • The car park may be busy, please drive in slowly. If you live locally you may wish to walk, if possible. You may also park in the free public car park nearby.
  • No other services will be offered during the clinics (unless there is a threat to life).
  • There will be further clinics scheduled in due course.

Test Results

Doctors, nurses or midwives ordering blood tests or other investigations/tests  will discuss with you how to get the results. If you do need to telephone the practice for results, please do so after 2.00 pm this may action your request quicker as we are less busy at this time.

 

Normal time period for when test results are availabletest_results6

 

  • Most blood test results are available within 7 days.
  • Urine and pregnancy tests within a week.
  • Smear tests take up to one month and are sent to you by post.

 

Before you leave the surgery you should expect to have a clear understanding of when and how any test results will be made known to you. We would attempt to contact you about seriously abnormal results, but you should always check with us on the result of a test.

 

As reception staff do not have the medical knowledge to advise on the clinical detail of the  blood test results, they will only confirm that the result has been received & reviewed by a GP, or not, and if so that the test is normal or if any further action is required.  If you would like further discussion or interpretation of the results then please refer to your 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, or the patient is under 16 year of age.

 

If your test was taken at a hospital appointment then the consultant or a member of their staff will be responsible for discussing the results with you.
