Additional Examinations, Advice and Interpretation

Requests for additional examinations:

Requests for additional examinations must be made as soon as possible, following the laboratory's receipt of the specimen. These requests must be made by telephone to the reporting pathologist. Depending on the nature of the specimen, and the request made, be aware that it may not be possible to accommodate your request although every effort will be made to do so, if clinically relevant.

Clinical advice and interpretation:

Clinical advice and interpretation is available via the multidisciplinary team meetings (MDTs), and from the reporting pathologist. If this pathologist is not available, other pathologists from the same specialty will provide this service.
