Analyser Error Affecting Creatinine Results

Due to an analyser failure at our laboratory in Hamilton yesterday evening, there are a number of creatinine results which have been reported as much higher than they actually are. We have identified these patient results and will be sending out amended reports today.

If you have noticed unexpectedly high creatinine results on reports received on the evening of 8th March, please do not act on them without first confirming that they are correct.

We sincerely apologise for this incident and assure you we are doing all we can to find all affected results.
