Blood test results can be viewed using your online access. If you do not have online access please contact reception who will be happy to advise you on the process.
Unless advised otherwise by your doctor, requests for results of tests made by telephone or in person should be made after 2:00pm. Please allow adequate time for the results to come back. The doctor or nurse can advise you of how long this may be at the time of your test.
Please note that reception staff are unable to interpret test results. They will only report normal results or will advise you to discuss the result with a doctor.
Note that 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.
It is your responsibility to enquire about your results and investigations and only in exceptional circumstances will the practice contact you. For results telephone 01903 708910 between 11am-3pm Monday to Friday.
X-rays and ultrasound results usually arrive two and a half weeks after the day they were taken. Please note that the practice do not routinely telephone patients with their results.
In the event that results are received by the practice earlier and there is a need for the doctor to discuss them with you, then the practice will telephone you. Please make sure we have your correct telephone number.
The results of any tests are confidential to the patient concerned but may be given to other authorised parties by agreement from the patient in writing.
You can find out which vaccinations are necessary or recommended for the areas you'll be visiting on these two websites:
NHS Fit for TravelTravel Health Pro
If you require any travel information or vaccinations please contact a travel clinic. If they recommend that you need any vaccinations provided by the NHS then these can be done by one of our practice nurses. Please be aware that the receptionists will not be able to book you an appointment with the practice nurse unless you have been seen by the travel clinic.
Not all vaccinations are available free on the NHS, even if they're recommended for travel to a certain area.
The following travel vaccinations are usually available free on the NHS:
These vaccines are usually free because they protect against diseases thought to represent the greatest risk to public health if they were brought into the country.
You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may, however, require you to complete a self-certification form SC1 which is available from your employer.
For any illness lasting longer than seven days you will need to see the doctor for them to issue a sickness certificate and for any subsequent renewal of the certificate.
If your employer requires a certificate from the GP for a period of illness lasting less than seven days, the practice will make a charge for this.
