Getting results of any test or procedure
At the time of consult your GP will advise when they expect results to arrive at the practice. Please note that it is a KJMC Practice policy that all results must be discussed with the GP and therefore you will need to make a follow up appointment. If you are unsure whether your results have arrived, please ring the clinic and you will be put through to a nurse who will check if they are in and you can then make an appointment to see the GP to discuss.
Please Note: GPs and other staff members are unable to give results over the phone or email.
Our practice is committed to preventative care. We may send you a reminder notice periodically, offering you preventative health services appropriate to your care.
Please let our staff know if you do not want to receive SMS reminders.

Health Record Management
It is the policy of the KJMC practice to ensure that your personal medical records are kept private and confidential. This is done by maintaining the security of information and ensuring that it is only shared with and available to authorized members of staff.
This practice acknowledges and encourages the right for individual patients to be actively involved in the decision making process of their personal healthcare and treatment.
Below are some useful tips that can help you to achieve this:
- Speak up if you have any questions or concerns. You have the right to ask questions and expect answers you can understand.
- Learn more about your condition or treatments by asking the GP or nurse for information you can take away or by consulting other reliable sources of information.
- Keep a list of all the medications you are taking (including prescriptions, over the counter, vitamins and herbs)
- Make sure you understand the medications you are taking by reading the labels and warnings or any extra information provided by the GP or nurse (you can request this from them if not provided).
- If relevant to your situation, talk to your GP about options regarding hospitalization, surgery or procedures.
