Test Results

If your doctor has sent you for a test, the practice will contact you either via text message or phone call if the doctor would like to discuss your results with you. Otherwise, please make an appointment with your doctor to follow up results of investigations.

Communication Services

Patients who require communication assistance are asked to let reception staff know when making a booking. Telephone Interpreting Services are available.
