Lab/Test Results | Ngaio Medical Centre

Keywords: Medical Centre

It is Ngaio Medical Centre policy that the doctor who orders a test, is responsible for actioning or managing the result. If s/he is away, they also have the responsibility of ensuring that another staff member tracks and manages it. Different doctors do this in different ways - for instance, some write a note regardless of whether a result is negative or positive while others just action positive results - with the understanding that the patient is invited to telephone themselves. Cervical cytology and mammograph results are routinely seen by both the doctor and a practice nurse. As there are such a large quantity of such results, patients are usually notified only if there is a problem.
