If your results indicate that some action is required, the practice will contact you. If you do not hear from us you may assume the test result has given no cause for concern. However, if you would like to access the result please phone the nurse from 2-5pm. Allow at least 2 days for blood results and 1 week for other test results to be processed. The nurses may text you to phone them if they need to discuss a result with you. Please check at the front desk that we have your latest mobile phone number.
Your test results automatically go to Testsafe where they are stored securely for electronic access by other doctors. e.g. at the hospital. This enables safer care and avoids having to have tests redone. If you wish to opt out of this system please inform us.
Some repeat prescriptions can be requested without seeing the doctor. However, all repeat prescriptions do require periodic reviews with the doctor. Different medications require differing length of review periods e.g. three or six monthly. The time interval will be agreed with the GP. Repeat prescriptions can be requested by phoning the nurse. Please allow at least 24 hours for your prescription to be ready. An additional fee will be incurred for faxed scripts or those required on the same day.
