  • They are not structured to take calls from the public, so once you have confirmed from Royal Mail tracking that they have your sample, you will need to be patient.
  • Labs have a target parameter of 3 days for processing. Sometimes, they can get them done in 2 days. Sometimes in 3 days, and sometimes it may be four days. Usually, it takes two days for the Lab to receive your sample. So, it can take 4-6 days to get your results. If you want a faster service, consider upgrading to the Premium 2 & 8, which is everything the next day for £280.
  • If you do the above, you can also inform DHSC about the location and status of the sample when they call you asking for your Lab results. This will also place less pressure on you to provide DHSC with updates on your results, as you will have facts to give them about the status of your sample.

Medicines Online will take your call or contact request to assist you. However, you will get better facts from looking inside your account to see the status of your sample.
