Your doctor will advise you during the consultation when they expect your results to arrive at the practice. We have commenced a new results notification by SMS system from August 2020.
After all your results have been checked by your doctor, an SMS message will be sent out informing you about your results. Depending on the nature of your results the SMS will advise you if no action is necessary, or if you are required to book an urgent or a non urgent followup appointment.
You will also be reminded by another message in a week if you have failed or forgotten to make the followup appointment as recommended.
Please note that no test results are filed in a patients computer file without being checked by the Doctor first. For patients who do not have a mobile phone, abnormal results will be conveyed by a phone call from the doctor or reception staff as necessary.
In the rare event that you have not received any sms messages or phone call please call reception to followup.
Please ensure that your mobile phone contact details are up to date so that we can contact you with specific follow-up instructions in a timely manner.
Please keep your appointment if one is made as a followup during your consult.
We are doing face to face consults and still offering telehealth consultations and script appointments.
