URGENT PATIENT NOTICE

Due to health issues Dr Wielink is currently away from the practice, unfortunately we are not in a position to confirm when Dr Wielink will return.

Whilst Dr Wielink is away from the practice we are attempting to secure locum cover at short notice. However patients should be aware there are significant GP shortages in Devon.

This will have an effect on the service we provide; priority will be given to those with the greatest need including serious and potentially life threatening illnesses, the young, frail elderly and palliative care patients.

We would value your cooperation and understanding during this time. You may notice pre-bookable routine appointments will be difficult to arrange during this period.

Test Results

Doctors, nurses or midwives ordering blood tests or other investigations will discuss with you how to get the results. If you need to telephone for results, please do so between 2:00pm and 5:00pm. Please note that you can access test results via Online Services.

  • Most blood test results are available within 7 - 14 days.
  • Urine and pregnancy tests within a week.
  • Smear tests take up to 2 months.

Before leaving the surgery you should expect to have a clear understanding of when and how test results will be made known to you. We would attempt to contact you about seriously abnormal results, but you should always check with us on the result of a test.

Please note we are only able to give test results to the patient themselves (over the age of 16 years) unless we have written consent given permission to pass the information to another named person. Forms are available at reception.
