The responsibility for accreditation of viral gastroenteritis testing (Rotavirus, Adenovirus and Norovirus) and rapid out of hours HIV testing is being transferred from the testing scope of the Infection & Immunity laboratory to that of the Microbiology laboratory. This is to comply with regulatory requirements regarding responsibilities for test results.
There will be no change to the testing or reporting of these results which will continue to be processed by the Microbiology laboratory. Clinical advice regarding these tests is available from the Consultant Virologist if required.
