Tests and Results
If you wish to call, please call between 13.30 and 18:30 to enquire about your test results as our reception staff will have more time to deal with your request between these times.
- The practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.
- When you take your test you will be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice.
- It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if you are advised to do so.
We don't undertake blood tests for children at the surgery, these are done at Scunthorpe General Hospital. For children under 10 years old please phone Children's Outpatient Clinic on 01724 387979 to make an appointment and for children aged 10 and over please phone the Pathology Department on 01724 290005 to make an appointment.
You can find out more about blood tests, their purpose and the way they are performed on the NHS Choices website.
