COVID-19 vaccinations

Please DO NOT call or email the Practice asking when your COVID Vaccination (either first or second dose) is going to be.

We are currently working through Cohorts 5 & 6 and catching up with the very last of previous cohorts.

There have been very thorough assessments made of those deemed to be 'clinically extremely vulnerable' and 'higher risk of serious disease and mortality' so there is no need to clarify this with the practice.

We have processes to ensure no one is missed and you will be contacted shortly if you have not yet had your first dose.

Do not contact the surgery to ask about your vaccination unless it is to provide an up to date mobile number via mullion.healthcentre@nhs.net with the title "mobile number".

Here is the Government Website link which is useful with regards to the vaccination programme and definitions.

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.
