The phlebotomist visits the surgery on Monday and Thursday mornings between 8.30am and 11.00am. When a doctor or nurse asks for blood tests you will be asked to make an appointment with the receptionist for this to happen. Outside of these hours blood can be taken at St Thomas within working hours. The receptionists can give you further details.
Children requiring blood tests are normally asked to attend the hospital in a specialist clinic, the receptionists will be able to further advise you of these clinic times if necessary.
GETTING TEST RESULTS
Test results cannot be given to any person other than the patient unless we have received written consent. When you telephone for a result you will be asked for your full name and date of birth. This will prevent the staff giving the wrong test results.
Results take sometime to come back to the Practice. The box below indicates a rough guide to the length of time that results reach the surgery.
Please note that any tests, which have been requested by hospital doctors, do not automatically come back to the practice.
The surgery is increasingly asked to complete forms and reports. These are completed as soon as possible. Some Non –NHS reports will require a fee, which you may be liable for. Examples of these are shown below:
Driving insurance form for patients with chronic conditions: Report with no examination Extracts from medical reports Medical/report
55.00 35.00 115.00
Yellow Fever including certificate
