At the time of your consultation your doctor will advise you when test results may arrive at the practice and how you should obtain that result. If you have been advised to phone for the results call the reception after 11am and staff will be able to refer to the doctor’s messages on results and pass on to you the message he/she has left regarding these results.
The doctor will clearly indicate on the result if they need to see you in an appointment or speak to you over the phone, or if everything is normal and no followup is required.
Copies of results organised through Launceston Pathology are available from their main laboratory in Frederick St for a fee of $5 provided you have photo identification. It is hoped these results will one day be available in your patient controlled electronic health record (PCEHR).
