Please telephone for results after 09:30. Most results take a couple of days to come back. In some cases the receptionist will not be able to give a result over the phone and will ask you to make an appointment to see the doctor instead.
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.
Please ensure samples are in a sterile container (available from reception) and are correctly labelled with the name and date of birth of the patient together with the date they have been taken. Samples should be accompanied by a completed request form from a doctor or nurse. Please bring all samples in before 12:30 to allow delivery to the hospital on the same day.
