Why do I have to see the doctor to get my blood results?
Your health is important to us. Generally bloods are only part of your health assessment. Usually the doctor will need to both discuss any abnormal results and sometimes order more tests if all results are normal. Your doctor will also assess if you are improving or if your symptoms are getting worse. it is a good idea to book your review appointment with the same doctor that orders the tests and before you leave the surgery. There are a few exceptions to this in patients who are having regular frequent blood tests.
