We require a patient request form for each patient and that both the form and sample are fully completed. The patient request form must include at least three unique patient identifiers:
1. Forename and surname
2. Date of birth
3. Hospital/clinic number &/or first line of the patients address.
Date and time of sample collection, relevant clinical information, current medication and the contact details of the requesting clinician must also be included on the request form. If you should require additional tests on samples already sent to the laboratory please contact us on 0116 265 3018.
