After having medical tests, it is your responsibility to arrange for a follow up appointment to receive your test results and discuss them with your doctor. The results of tests can only be given to you by your doctor. Reception and nursing staff are not authorised to discuss patient results over the phone or in person. In most cases, this will involve arranging an appointment with your doctor so you may be given an opportunity to discuss any concerns you may have about the tests or results and further management if required.
Victoria Street Medical Group is pleased to provide our patients with the convenience of on-site pathology services performed by Dorevitch Pathology. A designated Dorevitch collector is available every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9am to 1pm. Urgent blood test can be arranged during all other hours of operation of the surgery.
Referrals and repeat prescriptions
All prescriptions and referrals including repeats will require a consultation with your doctor. This is an important aspect of patient care so that clinical review of the medical condition being prescribed or referred for may take place with your doctor at the same time.
