Availability of reports/turnaround times
Target turnaround times (from specimen receipt to availability
of an authorised report) are as follows:
- Small specimens: 5 working days
- Large specimens: 7 working days
- Complex specimens: 14 working days
However, it is not always possible to have a final report
available within the above stated times. Complex cases may require
a sequential series of special investigations, and in the case of
referrals from elsewhere, time may be spent awaiting submission of
further diagnostic material at our request.
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.
If a report is not received as expected please contact the lab
as soon as possible on the contact details given above.
