We have Central Specimen Receptions across our five sites. These CSRs are at the forefront of our pathology service, processing hundreds of thousands of patient samples each month.
The departments run a 24/7 service and couriers and porters wishing to deliver/pick up samples out of hours will need to follow the instructions at the entrance.
Samples delivered by hand and those that are urgent or sensitive must be signed in on the delivery sheet which will then be counter-signed by the receiving member of the CSR team. This will ensure that the mandatory sample acceptance requirements are adhered to and will allow us to process the sample as quickly as possible.
All samples being sent to CSR must adhere to sample transport standards. Visit the Tests FAQ's page and to find out more about these requirements.
