Reporting of Results

Arrow In this section

Results from tests requested through the GLH will usually be delivered by e-mail to a designated email address which you will need to include on the request form. It is preferable for us if you use an account and you are advised to use a departmental, rather than an individual, account if possible.

Patient information is only secure when sent via email from one account to another account. As such, when sending laboratory reports across networks, the laboratory will use Proofpoint encryption. Service users will need to unlock the email on receipt. For help with this, please see our user guide here.

Please note that reporting times will vary depending on the test type and referral type. The turnaround times for specific laboratory services can be found on the relevant GLH Service profiles with examples here.
