Andrology service is currently operational with appointments available to bring a sample to the department, however whilst samples can currently be produced on site, there is very limited availability due to the added precautions put in place.
The clinic has resumed from November 2020 but at a reduced capacity. Patients also require a confirmed negative COVID-19 test before attending the clinic.
At this time the requesting clinician MUST also confirm that within 48-72 hours prior to the surgical procedure taking place, that the patient has provided a negative COVID-19 test. If no test has taken place or there is a positive result, the requested test(s) on fresh tissue cannot be carried out. To confirm this requirement or for more specific information please contact the laboratory (0141 354 9513/4) before taking a specimen.
