All tests and investigations required by specialists must be ordered by them and the appointments for these sent to you.
If the specialist requires blood tests, he/she should give you a request form which you can bring to the practice to book an appointment here. There is also a phlebotomy walk-in service at Royal Surrey Country Hospital, which is open from 08.30am-4.30pm, Monday to Friday, or you can book online at https://www.royalsurrey.nhs.uk/blood-tests. You may also be able to have this done in a community clinic. Please ask your specialist.
The specialist is responsible for acting upon the results of any test they request, and for informing you of the results.
If you haven’t heard from the specialist about a test result, please ring their secretary at the hospital. Unfortunately, your surgery may not know the result, and will not know what the specialist intended to do with the information.
