Obtaining Test ResultsObtaining Test Results

Patients will be advised by the clinician to contact the Practice for results of tests undertaken and the timeframe for these.

Results are received by the Practice daily from the Laboratory in Aberdeen and to ensure the Doctors are able to review these following their morning surgeries, the reception staff will be in a position to inform patients of results after 2.00pm.

In the interest of confidentiality, results are only given out to the patient they apply to unless prior consent has been obtained from the patient. Consent forms are available from reception or by downloading the form from our website, in order to grant access to third parties, if sanctioned by the patient.
