Biochemistry critical results

Biochemistry critical results

The critical notification list outlines Canterbury SCL’s protocol for notification of abnormal biochemistry results.

Results falling outside these limits will be automatically phoned or faxed to the requester.

Results outside our fax limits may require prompt attention and will be faxed to the requesting practice (or hospital ward) to improve timely care of your patients.

Results outside our phone limits are deemed to have the potential to be clinically critical and will be phoned to the practice; or to the requester if the practice is closed.
