Computer and Test Results

All patients’ records on file or on the computer are confidential. 

In order to maintain confidentiality, laboratory results and x-ray results will only be given to patients themselves or to parents of minors if appropriate. 

When inquiring about a result, please telephone after 11.00am when it is quieter. Information from patients' records may be passed between health service professionals if this is essential for patient care and anonymous data may be passed to the Primary Care Trust for statistical purposes. Patients have a right to look at their own records.
