So I had some blood tests last week, I have under-active thyroid and I was getting tested for vit b12, folates, ferritin, Free t3, free t4 and TSH levels.
I called today for the results, and was told by the receptionist that my levels were normal.
That was it, normal, for all those tests, thats what Im supposed to go away happy knowing.
When I asked her if I could have a copy of all the results she asked me why.....WHY!!! Remember she is not the doctor here!! I said because I would like to see the results myself, she responded that she would have to check with my doctor that Im allowed to even have them, and if she agrees, it will cost me £10.
What is going on!!! Im so mad right now!! Has this happened to anyone else? How dare the doctor, let alone the receptionist question why I would want to see my results! And how can they not allow me to have them?? Is this against the law? Surely we are allowed to see our own blood results!!!
Any help on this matter, as to what to do if they refuse me to see them, would be greatly appreciated!
