If you are asked to bring in any specimens for testing please ensure that they arrive before 11am, to ensure they can be sent to the hospital via the courier service.

You will be asked to complete a short form to go with your sample to ensure it is processed appropriately.

The Laboratory that looks at your sample may review all screening records, including your sample, as part of their aim to offer a quality service and to increase the expertise of specialist staff.  This means that staff who work elsewhere in the health service will need to see your records.
