Cervical Smears

Anyone who has a smear carried out at the surgery will receive their results by letter either from the practice or the hospital. This will tell you the result and follow-up arrangements. If you have not heard after eight weeks please ring reception and we will chase the result.

Pregnancy Tests

The doctor or nurse will make arrangements with you for these results.

Other Investigations

These will be given personally, by the doctor or the nurse, at a follow-up appointment or by letter.
