Blood Tests (Phlebotomy)
HOW TO ARRANGE A BLOOD TEST AND OBTAIN YOUR TEST RESULTS
If a doctor or nurse has advised a blood test you will be asked to either book an appointment through the community treatment centres on 0141 355 1525 or in certain cases asked to book in with the practice nurse.
Please be aware that you can only request your own test results. Due to our commitment to patient privacy we cannot disclose test results to anyone else.
It is important that you follow up with the surgery to obtain your blood test results. Please allow 1 week between your test and calling the surgery to obtain your results. In cases where test results will take longer, your GP will discuss this with you.
Normal results: In the majority of cases the receptionists will be able to confirm normal results over the phone.
Abnormal results: The GP reviews all test results and will contact you if there is anything that needs to be discussed urgently. If a result is abnormal but does not need to be discussed urgently, then you may be contacted by letter, text or telephone by our reception staff. If you would like to discuss the results with the doctor then please request a telephone appointment with the same GP who arranged your test.
