Dropping off a sample

Please note that our specimen collection takes place at lunchtime. To ensure that your samples can go off the same day please drop them into the surgery before 12pm. Many thanks.

Your Test Results

When you attend for a test of any kind you will be told how long you should expect to wait for the results. Please bear this in mind and call the Surgery, once sufficient time has elapsed.

Test results may be obtained in person or by calling us on 020 7624 9853 after 11am Monday to Friday.

You will be asked for some personal details when calling, this is to confirm your identity. The receptionist has the right to refuse the release of medical information if he/she feels that it does not pertain to the person calling. We hope that our patients find our high standards of confidentiality satisfactory with regard to releasing this type of information.

Alternatively, if you have registered with the practice for a Patient Access account you can request your test results via the secure messaging facility. For us to provide the results via Patient Access you must provide:-

  1. Type of test you have had taken and are requesting the result for e.g. x-ray, blood tests etc.
  2. Exact date the test was taken.
  3. Where the test was taken e.g. Brondesbury Medical Centre, The Royal Free Hospital etc.

If the test was arranged by your hospital consultant

If your test has been carried out at a Clinic or Hospital please call the Clinic or Hospital for the result, as we cannot action tests which have been requested by other Clinicians outwith the practice. If the consultant’s secretary or colleague inform you they will send the results to your GP, explain that you want the results from the specialist who arranged them who is in by far the best place to give appropriate advice.

Our Reception staff are not qualified to comment on results therefore it is your responsibility to check them and make any necessary follow-up appointment with the Doctor.

Please note that we do have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. In this respect we will only give out results to the person they relate to unless that person has given prior permission for their release or if they are not capable of understanding them.
