Tests and results
It is quicker and easier for you to access this information directly through the NHS App NHS App – NHS (www.nhs.uk) or you can enquire via e-Consult, a new way of contacting your practice The Rothbury Practice
If you do wish to call the surgery please do so after 10am. The receptionist will be able to tell you if any further action is required but is not qualified to discuss the result with you. If further discussion is necessary, please make an appointment to see your doctor or for them to ring you.
We will often ask people to arrange a telephone consultation if we feel the result needs explaining – asking you to call does not mean there is anything seriously wrong. Alternatively the doctor may write to you about the results.
We will always contact you as soon as we receive your results if there is any urgent action required.
