The results of any investigations such as blood tests, other pathology or scans are reviewed by doctor you referred you. If the doctor believes your results need discussion, you will receive a call asking you to make an appointment. Otherwise, please allow 72 hours before calling the surgery for your medical results.
We also have a comprehensive reminder system to provide systematic preventative care and early case detection. ie for pap smears, immunisations, care plan reviews etc. If you do not wish to participate in our reminder process, please inform our administration staff.
Your diagnostic images belong to you and we request that you keep them safe for future comparisons. We will keep a copy of the radiologist’s report.
