Hi everyone, can you tell me if there is such a rule that I can't see my blood results before GP looks at them?
I had some tests done 2 days ago. Yesterday I called to check if they came in and was told that they are back but GP didn't look at them so I have to call next day (today). Today I went to GP practice and requested my results, they said again I can't have them coz GP didn't have a look at them yet and I should call on Monday. I said "Aren't they MY blood results and I have the right to see them?" I was told "No, they are not official until GP looks at them".
I am so upset, I've been treated like a nuisance that they want to get rid of. I know that if I go on Monday, they still won't give them to me. I have appointment with GP on Tuesday but I wanted to see them before that. Otherwise, he just reads of the screen and I don't know what is he talking about. He says "normal" or "in range" and I can't question it because I don't know what the results are.
Is there really an NHS rule against showing the results to a patient before GP sees them?
