The laboratory uploads data to the Northgate Failsafe Solution each working day.
A sample received (01) message is usually uploaded to the Failsafe system 1-2 days after arrival in the lab, depending on the number of samples received each day.
Results are reported to the relevant Child Health Records Department within four working days of receipt but in practice this often occurs two days after receipt. Results will appear on the Failsafe the following morning.
