Viewing Your Results

We encourage everyone who is having a blood test to look at their own results using their online access and to only ring in to get their results if they do not have internet access. For more information on signing up for  online access, please click here.

It is important that you seek out your own test results and do not wait for surgery staff to contact you. If you have any questions about your results please ask your usual doctor. If you care for someone and you need to deal with us on their behalf, please get them to write a letter of consent to enable us to discuss their care with you.

Without this unfortunately, our staff will be unable to do so.
