  • I work in a non-NHS organisation – how do I get my specimens to your laboratory?

    We can arrange local courier collection from your premises for specimens which must reach our laboratories on the day they are taken.

    When samples are suitable for overnight delivery, we can provide approved containers for the safe transportation of specimens by Royal Mail or national courier. Click here
