Cervical Cytology Screening Results Delays
The Practice would like to inform you at the moment there are considerable delays in reporting cervical samples by the cytology laboratory at the Royal London Hospital. They are currently taking approximately 42 days from the date of receipt to screen and report the routine cervical samples.
We are aware that this will cause anxiety for patients who have to wait much longer for their results. The backlog is a national issue and has resulted due to multiple factors. The Royal London Hospital are working hard putting in implementations for a faster turnaround.
