I keep seeing posts where people are being charged for copies of their test results or being given no numbers by the GP who declare them to be normal.
It is in the GP contract that all patients can apply for online access for their Detailed Coded Records. This will allow you to see your parts of your medical including test results. The values of your tests are stated with the reference ranges. Some GP practice have embraced this further and you can see all your record with what was said in consultations etc.
Some practices do not agree with patient access and they will not advertise this right. Please look at NHS Choices for more information. This is an extra service on top of the online repeat prescription and online appointment booking. You need to fill in an extra application form. My GP surgery does not agree with this and at first the receptionists declared this was not available, if you come across this ask to speak to the IT manager. You have a right to see this information after all it is yours. You can also read up more about this on the "patient online" site. Please do not pay for paper copies of test results if you have a means of online access such as a PC or iPhone. You can copy and paste from the screen or take a screen shot if you want to show them to someone else.
The test results are also shown in relation to previous results in a graph if you explore. This will show trends. For example I can see all my FT4 results and the graph shows a downward spiral!
I hope this information is helpful. Please spread the word if you manage to do it!
