Why am i not being told my MRCP results?

Posted , 6 users are following.


I have had an MRCP to check my pancreas to see if there was any cysts this was on the 1st feb, last summer i had a CT with contrast which came back clear;

The doctor acknowledged the results on the 7th feb - and did not arrange a letter or a phone call to tell me my results

i do have a follow up for the 23rd march,

but this follow up was booked at the same time as my MRCP was booked in december, and not after my scan.

Should i be worried that no letter or phone call has been arranged on these scan results? i know there isnt because his secretary confirmed that there was no letter or phone call arranged by the doctor once they viewed the scan on the 7th feb.

Just slightly worried the doctor will deliver some not so good news and has waited over 6 weeks to tell me.

Just some advice would be nice.

Thank you.

    Very often doctors leave it to someone else to call you. They are too busy to call. You should have called if you did not hear from them.

    Hi Boffintosh

    If you are a UK resident you are entitled to see your results of any test you have had under "The Freedom Of Information Act"

    Make the appropriate telephone call and request your results either verbally or in print....best wishes...

    yes, Call the doc office and request a call back within 24 hours, at the latest 48 hours to find out the results. Most any doc would not leave you hanging if you had cancer. And would have you in right away, on the other hand the state of out health care leaves alot to be desired in today world and we have to be the squeaky wheel many times. So make the call, if you dont hear anything back keep calling them. Good luck
