Patients are responsible for following up their results.
Your doctor will advise when they expect your results to arrive at the practice. You are encouraged to make a review appointment to discuss your results with your doctor. In the event of a clinically significant result, you will be contacted as soon as possible to make a follow up appointment to discuss the results with your doctor. Your doctor may also contact you via SMS but will not do this without prior authorisation from you.
Some test results may be available to you by talking to our nurses. You can ring our phone results line on 9568 5300 between Monday – Friday from 2pm – 3pm.
Results are usually available 3 days after having the test.If you have previously consented with your doctor, results maybe sent to you via SMS. Please ensure that you advise us of any change to your contact details.
Please note that if a child is aged over 16 years, the details of test results cannot be legally disclosed to a parent without the patient’s prior consent, and this needs to be recorded in their medical notes.
