Blood tests, swabs and urine samples are sent to the laboratory daily. The results are computerised and usually received back two or three days later. In order for the doctor to comment on the result it is advisable to phone Bower Mount Medical Practice between 11am-12pm and 3pm-5pm, please press option 3 on the phone. Should you need further information you may need a telephone consultation with the doctor as the staff are not medically trained to discuss the result. X-Ray results are also discussed with the doctor as the receptionist can only check if it has been received, usually 10-14 days after your appointment.
Should you wish to give consent for a person phoning on your behalf to receive your results please obtain a form from reception. If there is a change of name, address or telephone number for you or a family member, it is your responsibility to update them from time to time by completing a change of name/address form available from reception.
