Please note the following in connection with a test result:
- If the GP or Practice Nurse has asked you to make a follow-up appointment it is NOT necessary for you to enquire about a test result on the telephone. Please allow 10 days.
- If you do not have a follow-up appointment then please telephone reception 10 days after the test to ensure that a result has been received and seen by the GP.
- Alternatively, the GP may have given you specific instructions.
Please telephone after 11 am for a test result
Reception staff are not clinically trained and cannot give you specific details about the result – please do not ask them. They will tell you if the result was normal, if you need to make a further appointment with the GP or if a prescription has been issued.
The telephone problem looks now to have been fixed. We have 2 lines for use when phoning the surgery, 0115 9525320, and 0115 9525321. If there is a delay in answering it will be because reception staff are busy with another call or dealing with people at reception desk.
