After Your Appointment

Within seven days we will send you a Clinic Letter detailing the contents or the consultation and recording any advice or treatment given as well as any actions taken such as investigations requested. 

Usually, as well as receiving a copy of any test or investigation results ourselves, we will ask for a copy of any test results to be sent directly to you from the laboratories or radiology or other relevant department; however if any test results are available before your clinic letter is sent then we will include them with the letter. By receiving the results directly you know the outcome of the investigations yourself as soon as possible and you have time to consider them before any follow up appointment. We find that this makes for more effective follow up consultations because you’re not waiting with anticipation and having had some time to consider the results there’s less new information to understand during the consultation, so you can pay more attention to the further advice given and the decisions you may need to take.
