Hi, I had some blood tests done 2 weeks ago and since I want to keep a copy for my own reference and track my symptoms I went to my practice to ask for July's results which consisted of a full blood count, electrolytes and some vitamin and mineral. I got the vitamin and mineral ones with no problem but when I realised that the liver function and full bloods had red flags next to them I got worried and couldn't understand why the doctor didn't print off the whole lot as requested.
So, I went back to the practice today and asked the receptionist for a copy. She told me that the GP needs to sign off my request and the receptionist asked me to wait for the copy to be printed off. She gave me a copy of results that were from August and not July! I thought I have a right to see my results? Why is it that the two blood tests that have warning flags against them are ones that my doctor doesn't seem to want me to see?
I don't understand the problem. If something is wrong on the blood tests why can I not see the problem or be made aware of it?
