It is important that you follow up and find out the results of your blood tests. You may have been asked to make a follow up appointment to discuss your blood tests. If you are phoning for results please allow about 1 week before calling the surgery (your GP will inform you if the test may take come back sooner or if it may take longer to come back)
Normal results: the receptionists may be able to tell you over the phone if all the tests were normal
Abnormal results: the GPs review all the results and will contact you if there is anything that needs to be discussed urgently. If not, they may contact you by text, phone or letter or wait for you to phone in. Ideally you should speak with the GP who ordered the results, who has assessed you and understands your case. If the GP concerned is not working on the day you phone in, this may mean arranging with reception a call back from that GP when they are next in.
After nearly 31 years working at Grantley Medical Practice Dr Fitchett is retiring at the end of April 2020.
"I will miss the patients, staff and colleagues, some of whom I have known since I started working at the practice. It has been a privilege and pleasure to have been a GP during this time and I leave knowing that the current doctors will continue to work hard to provide a caring service to the patients of the practice."View Details
