Northgate Failsafe Solution

The laboratory uploads data to the Northgate Failsafe Solution each working day.

A sample received (01) message is usually uploaded to the Failsafe system 1-2 days after arrival in the lab, depending on the number of samples received each day.

Results are reported to the relevant Child Health Records Department within 4 working days of receipt but in practice this often occurs 2 days after receipt. Results will appear on the Failsafe the following morning.
