Turnaround times

Due to the intrinsic, lengthy nature of the process, specific routine turnaround times (TATs) are difficult to guarantee.

However, samples that are requested by the Pathologist to be prioritised for clinical reasons are expedited through the system, with priority over all routine samples, and are examined in the order in which they are received.

Digital images should be available within 2 - 6 working days of receipt/notification of priority status dependent on the number of priority samples already in the system.
