Important information for patients viewing test results online

If you have been given access to view your test results online these will become available after one of the doctors has viewed and commented on them. Some results arrive in the practice with a comment from the lab of "Abnormal" or will show with a little red marker outside the normal range. It is important to look at the comment of the doctor who has viewed the result rather than this lab marker!

The marker which says "normal" may not be appropriate for you

In some situations the lab will view a result as normal when it is not correct for you. One example of this would be a patient on treatment for gout. The normal range for the test goes up to a value of 450, but if you are on treatment we target a value of below 300.

The marker which says "abnormal" may not be appropriate for you

The lab marker is based on a sample, if your result is in the same range as 95% of normal tests it will be marked as normal - so 5% of "normal" tests will be marked as abnormal.

More Information

The system is quite flexible. We have a limited number of appointments each day that can be pre-booked. If you need an urgent appointment you will be seen as soon as possible on that day. Please help the receptionists by telling them whether or not your problem is urgent.

Our practice also offers telephone consultations if you do not need to be examined by the GP. Book these like a doctor’s appointment and you will be given an approximate time that the GP will call you for your consultation. Our receptionists may well ask you to give an indication of why you need to see the doctor so that you can be booked into the most appropriate slot with consideration to the GP special interests.
