Please consider getting online access so you can look up your test results without needing to phone us. As well as the actual result it will show the comments/suggestions made by the GP/Advanced Nurse Practitioner and what the next step is. Of course if a result is especially important we will contact you.
Please telephone within 2 days after you have had your test and after 14:00 for test results. The doctor will mark all results with appropriate actions and the receptionists can relay this to you.
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.
The laboratory at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital use any surplus blood that is left after required tests have been carried out for training purposes. If any patient has objection they must specify this at the time of their appointment.
