Request for Pathology Supplies
User Survey Feedback

In July your help was requested for a Service Improvement project entitled: ‘Understanding customer values and improving communication with our customers’ We requested your feedback via a customer user survey which was sent out to all GP practices served by SPS. The survey was divided into two parts:
  • Customer Satisfaction — which focused on specific areas of service delivery
  • Customers Values — which focused on understanding what our customers valued from our service

Provision of key clinical information on laboratory specimen request forms

The purpose of this Health and Safety Executive Safety Notice is to alert health and social care services to potential risks to laboratory staff, if specimen request forms do not contain relevant details. It will be of particular relevance to medical staff within organisations that provide specimens from patients to laboratories for testing. This will include all persons who have direct patient contact who complete the electronic or paper specimen request forms e.g. clinicians, nurses and General Practitioners.

Following reports made under The Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995 (RIDDOR), HSE's Biological Agents Unit (BAU) have conducted a number of investigations at Clinical Diagnostic Laboratories. A common theme is the lack of sufficient relevant clinical details being provided on specimen request forms. This has resulted in samples being handled at the wrong biological containment level with resulting increased risk of infection to laboratory staff. Medical staff should ensure that appropriate information, including relevant travel history is provided in order to alert laboratory staff of potential dangers.
