UK performance targets are set by the Association for Clinical Genomic Science (ACGS; http://www.acgs.uk.com/). Laboratories aim to report investigations as soon as possible, and 90% should be within the turnaround targets.NHSE Reporting Time Targets (samples received from 1st Oct 2018)
In Leeds Genetics Laboratory over the quarter July 2019 to September 2019, 43% of investigations reported were within target, and the laboratory is operating a plan to improve this figure. The performance varies between investigations and over time, so we urge you to contact us for further detail where turnaround time may impact on clinical care, or in case we can expedite the investigation.
We also urge you to contact us where national turnaround targets shown do not adequately address clinical need, as we may be able to agree a locally set target.
