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

Test results will be given out between 09:30 – 17:00, Monday to Friday. 

Result will be given out normally only to the patient or the patient’s representative, if a previous arrangement has been made, following confirmation of name, address, and date of birth. 

Please note that due to confidentiality young adults aged 16 and over should ring in for their own test results unless a previous arrangement has been made. 

If you need to discuss your test results further you should make an appointment with your GP.
