The transport system that we have had for the last year or so is working well.
We get bloods and other clinical samples picked up each morning around 10.30am (the exact time varies by day as the driver collects from other remote practices in the area too).
This means that we are getting our results usually that evening, compared with posting samples and getting results days later. It means our results are more accurate - no more repeat blood tests for mild abnormalities caused by the sample "going off" in the post.
The transport is provided by volunteers such as Blood Bikers and by porters from Dunoon hospital.
