Just to confirm with the patient that they are?

Not usually. It may not be anything to worry about though. I hope you can speak to your GP soon to get it sorted out. Good luck OP.

Mine does, it used to freak me out as I thought it meant something was off but no they just ring to say normal grin

Well I had a phone consultation yesterday after a blood test last week to confirm that my bloods were okay and that I could continue my medication. So in my case, yes.

Yes, I get a call to say everything normal.

It depends why you had the tests. If it was because of an issue, they'll need to book an appointment to discuss alternative options

Thanks I would have just have thought the receptionist would be able to say if results were normal.

Mine has previously.

Sometimes it can be for a follow up, see how you're doing now. Or it may be to arrange different investigations. Or it may even be just to say the results are nornal, come back in x time if no imporivement

They used the phase to discuss the results of the blood tests. If normal would they need to discuss?

In my experience the person the phone can say if they're normal
What were the tests for?

The ones they took were clotting, full blood count and u&e’s.
