GSTT Full Blood Count Haematology Analysers Upgrade
Important information for service users
The documents below provide service users with information about the new analytical instruments being installed in Guy’s and St Thomas’ hospitals. The change in full blood count (FBC) analysers is relevant to colleagues working at both hospitals, local GP practices (mostly those in Lambeth and Southwark boroughs), and a small number of NHS organisations from outside south east London which refer samples for specialist testing services.
The service swapped to the new analysers on 5 October 2023 alongside the introduction of Epic, the new Electronic Health Record (EHR). While the project has been carefully planned to cause minimal disruption, there are some minor planned delays during the swap out. Synnovis colleagues are working closely with speciality clinical leads to ensure that clinicians are aware and that plans are made for ongoing patient management where appropriate.
