If your jaw specialist refers you for a head scan (gives you a letter to take for permission) can your results be forwarded to your GP?

I don't trust my jaw specialist and he charges an arm and a leg. I don't want to go back, but rather have my results emailed to my GP or sent directly to me so I can pass on to the GP. Would a radiological clinic allow that, or do they only send information back to the specialist who referred you?

    Most will send it wherever you want, they really don’t care, but if it’s several copies, they may charge

    As I understand it, you own the results, so you can have it sent where you want, or sent to you. You may get an argument from the lab, but that is the law.
