Empowered by this forum, I went to the surgery to ask for print-outs of my blood tests. The receptionists then said that they would have to ask the doctor if I was allowed the results. Apparently, the blood results are for the doctor and any tests and medical files belong to the NHS, so the doctor has to approve me having them. They cannot just hand them over to me.
I can understand the results are for the doctor to interpret, because obviously he's the expert. But they are surely my results and I can have them if I want to without having to explain why? I now feel like the doctor is allowed to censor my results if he wants to. Hopefully he'll just approve them, but I will find out on Monday.
I am still surprised about this response, even though this forum has already showed that surgeries are very arbitrary in giving you your own blood results.
