Patient Test Results
Your doctor or pathology collector will advise you when they expect the results of tests or procedures to arrive at the practice. We ask that you contact our Practice Nurse to find out if you require further follow up with your practitioner. Please be aware that you will be contacted by telephone if any results are of an urgent nature. However, results will not be provided over the telephone.
Scheduling an appointment is essential to minimize consultation waiting time. We ask that where possible you advise our staff if you believe a longer consultation or Nursing assistance is required. Emergency situations are given priority and our staff will attempt to contact you prior to your arrival to advise of any delays that may affect your appointment time. Our online booking system is available for your convenience.
