Blood Tests and Results of Investigations
Bloods are taken every morning in Ty Bryn Surgery and in Machen Surgery on a Tuesday morning by appointment only. Please report to reception on arrival and remember to bring your blood form with you to your appointment
If a doctor has requested a specimen of urine or faeces please drop this off in surgery before 11.30am on the above days.
Your doctor will ask you to telephone the surgery for the results of tests. Results are normally vetted by your own doctor before they can be given by a nurse or receptionist. Instructions are sometimes given when you telephone. The best time to telephone is between 3pm and 6pm when the telephone is less busy and the receptionist has more time to find the result if it is available.
In order to maintain confidentiality, laboratory results will only be given to patients themselves or to parents if the patient is a minor. If in doubt or if you are concerned, make an appointment to see your doctor.
