A message for all Trust pathology users

We are pleased to inform you that we are restarting the suspended Faecal Calprotectin service from 18/6/20. We apologise for the interruption to patient referral pathways that the suspension of the service has caused.

The sample requirements will continue to be the normal blue topped stool pot.

There is an ongoing study of the use of alternate stool pots and we hope to update you with the outcomes of this study in due course. Unfortunately any samples received over the last three months will need to be repeated.

If you have any questions regarding this service, please do not hesitate to contact me.
