Online test results

Penguin using a computer

From April 2016 it will be possible to view online the results of tests requested by GPs or practice nurses.

Results will be visible only when they have been seen by one of the doctors. The doctor will write a comment to explain the significance of the result. We will try to make these comments helpful and self-explanatory, and if any results require further actions you will be notified by phone or letter. We will not rely on patients seeing their results online unless this has been specifically agreed with you in advance.

The requirement to make results available online is a government initiative. We hope that it is useful but we have not received any additional resources to support this as an extra service.

We will make an explanation of common comments available here, and in-depth information is available at LabTestsOnline. We cannot provide a service to discuss the details of your results in person except where there is a clinical need to do so.
