Specimen Samples

If you need to request test results, please use our online form.

Samples that are brought to the surgery after 15:00 will not be tested and you will be asked to repeat the sample and return this to us during 08:30-15:00.

Please note we are closed between 13:00-14:00.

Samples will also not be tested if your demographics have not been completed, likewise, if the sample has not been requested by a clinician.

If you would like a specimen bottle, please ask at reception where they will be able to provide you with the correct specimen container.
