GPs are able to recommend trusted health and wellbeing apps on the NHS Apps Library to their patients. The NHS Apps Library currently has more than 70 apps covering a wide range of health and wellbeing specialisms and physical activity monitors and has now had more than a million visits. Mental health apps have so far proved to be the most popular followed by pregnancy and baby apps, with sleep, diabetes and healthy living making up the remaining top five categories.

Test Results

test_vials2We ask that you telephone after 2pm one week after your tests were done, to confirm that your results are back. Please do not wait for us to contact you or wait to receive a text message. Always phone for your test results, or check them online if you have access to your medical record online.

The results of all cervical smear tests will be sent to you by post.

If you had a test requested by a hospital consultant or doctor please contact them for the result.

Text messages

Test results available

Texts will be sent once your results have been checked by a doctor. This service is still in its pilot phase, as currently only patients with results needing further action get a text message. Please make sure to ring the surgery for your test results.

Please be aware that tests are sent to several laboratories and take differing lengths of time to process. If you have more than one test done you may receive a text reminder for each individual result.

It is vital that we have your correct number on our records – if you need to update your mobile phone number please let us know at the surgery. If you do not wish to have text messaged results then please let reception know, so we can make a note on your medical record.
