Test Results

Results of investigations, which have been checked by your doctor may be obtained by telephone 01204 463777 after 2.00 pm, Monday – Tuesday and Thursday – Friday.

Except in the case of children, please 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.

Phlebotomy Service (Blood Testing)

For patients requiring a blood test, the practice now provides this service in-house, instead of at the Royal Bolton Hospital. Our Health Care Assistant, Julie Flynn, runs our Phlebotomy Clinic every morning. If you have been requested by the doctor to have a blood test performed, please phone the surgery on 01204 463777 to make an appointment.

Specimens

Urine samples and other specimens going to the hospital laboratory for testing must be handed in at our reception by 12:00 (Weekdays only). Please seal all specimen bottles tightly and ensure that they are dry when placing them in the plastic bag attached to the laboratory form.
