All specimens for processing at the hospital laboratory are collected daily (excluding weekends) from the practice. Please ensure that specimens for testing are handed into reception before 12 noon and that the container is clearly marked with the patient’s name and address.
As test results do take time to reach us we would be obliged if you did not telephone before you have been asked to do so. When ringing for results please telephone (0151 677 2327) after 2.00pm when results should have been received and seen by the doctor.
Enquiries about tests ordered by the hospital should be directed to the hospital and not the practice. In order to maintain confidentiality test results will only be given to the patient or to parents/guardians of minors if appropriate.
