Urine Testing

 Guidance notes for Patients bringing in urine samples

Urine sample pots can be obtained from reception. (We are unable to accept samples in glass jars but if the patient doesn’t have a urine pot then he/she may decant the sample in private into a urine pot at the surgery)

If a sample is handed in on a Friday this must be before 11.00 am in case it has to go up to the hospital for further investigation; urine samples cannot be held at the surgery over the weekend.

If a sample is handed in on Monday to Thursday ideally this should be before 11.00 am in case it has to go up to the hospital for further investigation, but the sample can be held overnight in the fridge.

The receptionist will ask the patient to complete a brief form when handing in the sample giving patient details and either the symptoms or the reason, unless the patient already has a pathology form from a Doctor.
