Blood Sciences Update September 2022

Coventry and Warwickshire Pathology Services

Blood Sciences Transformation

Migration to the new blood sciences analysers at the Hub Laboratory at CWPS Nuneaton (George Eliot Hospital) occurred on 25thSeptember 2022 and will include the following services:

  • Biochemistry
  • Immunology
  • Viral Serology 

New platforms for provision of these tests are being introduced, and much outpatient and primary care work will be undertaken at the Hub Laboratory.

The change of platforms means that new assays are not UKAS accredited.  Please be assured that our assays will become accredited as soon as possible.

Some reference ranges in Biochemistry and Immunology are changing. The new reference ranges can be found on every patient result, and are also be available on GP Gateway. These changes have been discussed with appropriate clinical leads. In addition, Laboratory contact numbers at the Hub Laboratory, should you have queries or require advice regarding tests, are below:

Discipline Laboratory Number
Biochemistry 02476 153552
Haematology 02476 865208
Immunology 02476 153160
Viral Serology 02476 153159
