PATIENT INFORMATION REGARDING SPECIMENS

AS FROM 1ST JANUARY 2018 THE DROP IN SAMPLE BOX WILL NO LONGER BE IN OPERATION.

 

IF YOU SUSPECT THAT YOU HAVE A URINE INFECTION:

  • GO TO TREATMENT ROOM

  • PLEASE TAKE A NUMBER

  • FILL IN THE URINE FORM PROVIDED

  • WAIT TO BE SEEN BY A NURSE

ANY SAMPLES LEFT ON DESK WILL NOT BE TESTED AND WILL BE DISCARDED. 

YOU MUST WAIT TO SEE THE NURSE.

IF YOU WISH TO LEAVE A FAECES, SPUTUM OR URINE PREGNANCY TEST THAT HAS NOT BEEN REQUESTED BY A GP YOU MUST REPORT TO YOUR GP’S RECEPTIONIST.

URINE SAMPLES – WHY ARE WE CHANGING THE SYSTEM?

EVIDENCE SHOWS THAT BACTERIAL RESISTANCE TO ANTIBIOTICS IS INCREASING AND THEREFORE INFECTIONS INCLUDING URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS SHOULD ONLY BE TREATED IF YOU ARE UNWELL AND SYMPTOMATIC 

PIP APPLICATIONS

As a Practice we no longer complete requests from DLA / Attendance allowance / PIP forms OR for supporting evidence.

We strongly believe that to get an accurate assessment a face to face consultation is vital.  This needs to be carried out by the agency making the decision about your application, not by your GP.

Test Results

Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior written permission for the release of this data.

Please Note: This is applicable to all patients aged 16 and over.

When you take your test you will be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice.

We would ask all patients to contact the practice for their results and to make an appointment with your doctor if you are advised to do so or if you wish to discuss your test results further.

Please Note: Administration Staff are not medically trained to comment on results.
