PATIENT NOTICE

We welcomed Dr Matt Owen to the practice as GP Partner at the end of July.  Dr Owen will take over the care of Dr Burke’s patients during August. 

Dr Tim Burke has now retired from the Wallingbrook Partnership but will continue to provide the occasional GP session from September, we wish Dr Burke a very happy retirement and thank him for his contribution over the last 21 years.

We will also welcome Tom Humphreys, Nurse Practitioner to the surgery at the end of August.

 

Test Results

Doctors, nurses or midwives ordering blood tests or other investigations will discuss with you how to get the results. If you need to telephone for results, please do so between 2:00pm and 5:00pm. Please note that you can access test results via Online Services.

  • Most blood test results are available within 7 - 14 days.
  • Urine and pregnancy tests within a week.
  • Smear tests take up to 2 months.

Before leaving the surgery you should expect to have a clear understanding of when and how test results will be made known to you. We would attempt to contact you about seriously abnormal results, but you should always check with us on the result of a test.

Please note we are only able to give test results to the patient themselves (over the age of 16 years) unless we have written consent given permission to pass the information to another named person. Forms are available at reception.
