We will contact you by telephone, or by letter, only if a result is abnormal and you require treatment or further investigations. You will not be contacted if your result is normal. If you wish to enquire about the results of your tests please telephone after 10.30am. The administrative staff will give results to you or you may be asked to speak to the nurse or doctor. Results of patients over the age of 16 will not be given to anyone other than the patient without prior consent, except in exceptional circumstances.
