A detailed report is given after a Full Health Screen or Well-Man/Woman Screen which include recommendations to improve your health along with copies of blood reports and any other results of tests which may have been taken.
The report is produced 7 workings days after the appointment date, which allows time for blood results to be returned from the laboratories and other tests added if clinically indicated. The report can either be sent to you by first class post, emailed or picked up from the practice.
