Most of the tests e.g. MSU, Blood etc. that are taken at the Surgery are sent to Chesterfield Royal Hospital Calow. The samples are collected from the Surgery at 2pm and delivered to the hospital the same day.
We are able to access Chesterfield Royal Hospital's ICE System, and this gives us access to test results that have been done, either whilst staying in hospital or visiting the Consultants at an out patient appointment.
