Laboratory Specimens

If you are asked to hand in a specimen that needs to go to the hospital laboratory, please ensure that it is handed in to the receptionists before 11:00. This is because a courier attends the surgeries shortly after 11:00 as he goes around various surgeries in Bolton collecting specimens.

If unable to get the specimen to us before 11:00 you can hand it in at the Diabetic Centre on Chorley Street before 13:00. After this time, you will have to hand it in directly to the Pathology lab at the Royal Bolton Hospital, up to 16:00.
