Urgent specimens

It should be indicated on the request form if the specimen requires urgent attention.

It is recommended that specimens deemed to be urgent are received by the laboratory as early in the day as practicable and before 1500h.

If a report is required by a particular date, this should be indicated on the request form. An attempt will be made to accommodate these requests, but a final report by a particular date cannot be guaranteed.
