Information for Patients Under Hospital Care

Tests & Investigations                                                  

All tests and investigations required by the specialists must be ordered by them and the appointments sent to you.             

                                                                                                      

If the specialist requires blood tests he/she should give you a request form which you can take to whoever normally provides blood tests in your area. This varies and may be your surgery, hospital or community clinic.

 

The specialist is responsible for acting upon the results of any test he/she requests and for informing you of the results.

 

If you haven’t heard from the specialist about a test result please ring the specialist’s secretary at the hospital, not the GP practice as your surgery may not know the result and will not know what the specialist intended to do with the  information.
