Smear tests

Results of smear tests will be sent to the patient by NHS England. If you have not received your result within four weeks of the test please call your surgery - numbers as above.

Please try to avoid calling the surgery before 10.00am as the lines are extremely busy with patients booking appointments.

Our reception staff are not qualified to interpret your results, but can let you know the comment that has been made about them by the doctor.  It is then your responsibility to make any necessary follow-up appointment with the doctor or nurse.

Please note that we do have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. In this respect we will only give out results to the person they relate to unless that person has given prior permission for their release or if they are not capable of understanding them.
