Noticeboard

The Partners and staff would like to welcome Dr Anika Patel to the team.  Dr Patel will be working 4 days a week and is joining the Practice as a Salaried GP.  Dr Patel has recently relocated to the Furness area from the south of England

REPAIRS TO THE SURGERY BUILDING

At long last work to repair the front elevation of the building will commence on Monday 20th November 2017.

During the work we unfortunately will be unable to use two of our consulting room and will once again relocate some of our appointments to Cohen's Pharmacy on Friars Lane, some of you will be aware of this process from when we had to relocate over 12 months ago.

We will keep as many of surgeries operational from the practice premises and when you make your appointment with the GP you will be informed of the location of your consultation.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and at this stage we aware of how long the work will take, but unfortunately these are essential repairs which cannot wait until we move the new premises at Alfred Barrow.

Thank you for your patience

Test Resultsblood_taking

If you have had a test carried out at the practice, you can find out the results approximately 4 to 7 days after the test. Some tests may take longer. Test results are received electronically at the practice but will need to be viewed and commented on by a doctor or nurse before they can be given out to the patient.

If your results have been received and seen by a clinician, the receptionist can give you the results over the telephone, or give you a message from the GP (such as whether you need a prescription, or need to make an appointment). If you wish to see someone about your result when it arrives, always ring the surgery before making an appointment to make sure that your results have been received.

If your test results are normal and do not require any action, we will not normally contact you. However, if there is some abnormality we will contact you and let you know what to do (please ensure that your contact details are always up-to-date).


You can telephone the surgery for test results 
between 13:00pm and 15:00pm Monday - Friday




Cervical cytology results (smears) will be posted to you directly from the testing centre. We usually receive your results at about the same time as you do. Please allow at least 4 weeks for these results to arrive.

Sometimes patients have investigations arranged by hospital consultants. We do not automatically receive these results at the surgery, however we may be able to access them if you request this.



Confidentiality

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.
