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.
Our reception staff are not qualified to comment on results, therefore it is your responsibility to check them and make any necessary follow up appointments with the doctor.
Please note that we do have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. In this respect, we will only give out results to the person they relate to unless that person has given prior permission for their release or if they are not capable of understanding them.
Specimens are sent to the hospital Monday to Friday. If you are asked to bring a specimen on those days, please ensure that we receive it before 11:00.
