An appointment is necessary to review a medical condition prior to the issuing of repeat prescriptions or ongoing referrals. This is not only to satisfy medico-legal obligations but also to ensure optimal patient management and treatment.
All results can be discussed by making an appointment with your doctor. Reception staff are not medically trained to be able to provide or discuss specific results, but may be able to relay the doctor’s comments. Doctors will notify patients by telephone if a result requires urgent attention.
There is a current practice of X-Rays and other scans being accessed electronically from the doctors computer.
