The importance of correct identification and sample labelling cannot be overstated. Each and every sample MUST be labelled with the Surname, Forename, DOB and Hospital Number (in emergency cases the A&E number will be accepted) or NHS number for primary care patients. When information to identify the patient uniquely is missing or incomplete then a new sample and request form will be required and will cause delays. X R numbers are not acceptable.
