We encourage all patients to follow up on all tests performed.

The follow up of your results are your responsibility. It is recommended that you organise a follow up consult at the time of initiating investigations.

Results of tests (pathology, imaging, biopsies, etc) should be followed up with the doctor who initiated the investigations as the subsequent actions are as important as the results obtained.

You will need to make an appointment to discuss your results in detail, with your treating doctor. The medical receptionists do not have the authority to release the details of your results.

The practice nurse will contact you via phone or SMS to advise if you need an appointment to see your Doctor. If our attempts to contact you are unsuccessful, a letter will be forwarded to your address to contact us for an appointment. Please make sure your contact details are correct.

If your results are normal, we will not contact you. You are welcome to phone us to check if your results have been returned to us, but you will have to make an appointment to discuss these results.
