Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi, I'm Dr Osula and thanks for your detailed message.
As a GP myself, I've dealt with scenarios like this which can be frustrating for patients.
Your GP is your advocate so in fact he/she should try to obtain the test results on your behalf. They can have direct access and the clout that you as a patient would not have.
Your GP can alternatively get one of the admin team in the surgery to chase the results which can easily be faxed or emailed to the surgery.
You'll find the best way to do things is normally to send an email, that way there's an audit trail and noone can deny they did not receive any correspondence. I hope this helps.
