Test Results and recalls
All test results will be viewed by your Doctor and recorded in your history. Enquiries for test results can be made with our staff between 2pm and 5pm M-F.
This practice uses a “Recall & Reminder” system to provide preventive care for its patients. This ensures that important health checks are not forgotten and are performed on time.
Patients are reminded, primarily by text, when it’s time to visit for a check up, or as follow up to health risks that have previously been found.
If you do not want to be on a recall list, please advise reception or your doctor.
