You may notice a test result appear in your NHS app referring to segmentation. Segmentation is a simple way of categorising patients based on their specific health needs. It helps us as a practice understand the individual needs of our patients based on their health and wellbeing to support  personalised care and ensures you get the right support in a timely way.


Test Results

The surgery does not routinely contact patients to give them test results. We only contact patients where there is a need for follow-up.

If you want to access your results you can do this via your preferred online access app provider (eg Patient access app or NHS app) if you are not registered for these apps and need assistance please contact reception who will be happy to point you in the right direction to register

Please only contact reception for blood test results Tuesday to Friday mid-morning or late afternoon when our reception team have more time to deal with your request.

We will only provide test results for those tests requested in primary care. For tests requested by the hospital doctor you will need to contact the hospital directly as it is their responsibility to interpret and arrange any necessary follow-up.

Allow five days for the results to come back to the surgery. Some test results may take longer.

We do not accept any samples from patients that have not been requested.
