These may be obtained by telephoning Greens Norton Medical Centre 01327 358287 or Weedon Surgery 01327 340212 after 1100. The receptionist may then inform you of the result, or she may ask you to arrange an appointment with your doctor to discuss your result. It is practice policy only to give results of medical tests to patients over 16 and to the parents or guardians of those below this age. Unless consent has been given and documented on the patient record, results and other medical information cannot be given to a third party. The time it takes for a result to come back varies depending on the type of test. The person arranging the test will give you an indication of the length of time for the result to come back. Do not be alarmed if you are asked to speak to/see a doctor or repeat the test. Our administrators are not trained to interpret results and often tests have to be repeated for technical reasons.
Specimens are sent to the hospital on a daily basis. If you are asked to bring a specimen please ensure that we receive it before 1145.
