CORONAVIRUS COVID-19 - 28th March 2020 Update
In light of current events, we expect our service to be under strain in the coming weeks. As such we will be required to prioritise testing - turnaround times of non-urgent tests are likely to increase.
We hope for your understanding and cooperation during this period.
For non-urgent laboratory enquiries, please use our generic email: Immunology.Labs@ggc.scot.nhs.uk
Information for Clinical Immunology patients and their clinicians can be found on our Clinical Immunology page (updated 28th March 2020)
