Results Turnaround

Results for most samples are usually reported electronically to child health departments within four working days of sample receipt by the laboratory. It may take an additional 1-2 weeks to provide a final screening result in samples that require further testing at external laboratories.


The laboratory works with screening managers to arrange a courier service during extended bank holidays and other foreseeable disruption to postal services.
