Any samples requested by the doctor or a nurse should be placed in the receptacle provided at reception please put your sample container in a plastic bag or envelope for hygiene reasons.

Please ensure the sample is labelled with your name, date of birth and GP. All samples brought to the surgery for testing should be received by 16:00 unless specifically instructed by a nurse or GP.


If you require test results and the doctor has advised you to telephone for these, it would assist the receptionists if you could ring 254600 between the hours of 10:00 and 11:30 or 14:00 and 17:00 when the phones are less busy.
