Patients wishing to see the treatment room nurse, should book an appointment at reception on arrival at the surgery. Treatment will be carried out once a patient has seen a GP / nurse and the tests required have been confirmed.
Test and blood samples are collected daily for processing by Belfast Trust Labs at 11.30am and 3.00pm.
The GP will inform you if your sample needs to be analysed the same day. Please attend before the lab collection time if this is the case.
Results of tests and investigations are available by telephoning the surgery. For reasons of confidentiality, results cannot be given to anyone other than the patient, unless their permission has been given to the surgery in advance.
The practice is now providing a sexual health screening service to our patients. Any patients who wish to use this service can make an appointment with the practice nurse.
What’s involved in an STI screen?
A basic STI check up includes tests for chlamydia, gonorrhoea, HIV and syphilis. These are checked by sending a blood and urine sample or self-taken vaginal swab to the laboratory.
How soon will I get my results?
It may take up to 2 weeks for all of your results to be available and your GP or nurse should discuss how these will be communicated to you. It is important that you provide reliable contact details and give your clinic permission to contact you.
What happens if any of the test results are positive?
In the event of any positive result, our primary concern will be for your health and well being. You may be able to get treatment from your GP for some infections, including chlamydia. However, positive results for gonorrhoea, HIV or syphilis will be referred to your local genitourinary clinic (GUM) where experienced staff will provide treatment, advice and support.

Cervical Screening Info
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
In addition to our contracted services, which take priority; the surgery may also provide private medical examinations, reports and certificates, including pre-employment medicals, and reports for DLA and insurance companies.
This work is undertaken on a private basis and a fee is payable by the patient or organisation requesting the information to cover surgery costs.
