This old chestnut again I’m afraid.
Previously, if I have asked for a printout, I have received it without any problems. However, for the last four years or so I have mostly had my results over the phone from the GP concerned.
I had some more tests on Tuesday (not thyroid-related). I rang up this morning and was given the usual ‘normal – no action’ flannel, so I asked for a print out. I was told that the doctor I had seen was not in surgery today and they would have to send her a message ‘to see if it was all right’. I had to pin the receptionist down as to when I should call back, so I will call back tomorrow afternoon as instructed, but I have the feeling I will be given the run around.
As I understand it, my results are my data under the Data Protection Act and I am fully entitled to them. What else do I need to say when I call back? Can someone summarise this for me please?
