|The Pathology Department of Bon Secours Hospital is
committed to providing a high quality, efficient clinical laboratory
service with a walk-in facility for outpatients, with no appointment
necessary and same day reporting for the majority of blood
The Pathology Department performs a wide range of clinical laboratory investigations
on biological samples utilising state of the art diagnostic analysers and
techniques. These investigations are intended to prevent, identify and
monitor diseases and their treatment. The investigations are performed
by experienced scientific staff, supported by Consultant Pathologists in
each of the disciplines.
All Departments participate in appropriate internationally accredited external
quality assurance schemes.
The Phlebotomy service is available to both inpatients and outpatients.
Outpatients should attend in the morning as there are more Phlebotomists
available and patients will be attended to promptly. Outpatients require
a referral letter from their doctor but it is not necessary to make an
appointment, (unless the patient is undergoing ”dynamic function
tests” when it is advised to make an appointment to ensure no undue
delays occur). It is our policy not to inform patients directly of their
Pathology results without the consent of the referring doctor.
