During a routine inspection

Labco Diagnostics UK Limited provided routine Pathology Services within the disciplines of Clinical Chemistry, Haematology and Microbiology.This involved monthly monitoring of dialysis efficiency.

We did not speak with people who used the service because they did not attend the laboratory. The services of the laboratory was contracted by Fresenius Medical Care.

There were suitable systems in place that ensured patients received their results in a timely way. Strict controls ensured that the transportation of samples was undertaken safely. Once arriving at the laboratory the systems in place to identify and analyse specimens was fully automated. The provider ensured that the staff undertaking the tests were trained and competent.
