The hub is located further away than where my tests are undertaken today. Will this have an impact on testing turnaround times and/or the stability of blood samples?

SYNLAB and other pathology providers have demonstrated that the hub-and-spoke network model results in faster testing turnaround times overall, which is why NHS networks across the country are adopting this approach. SYNLAB already has a proven track record of supporting GPs and other healthcare providers at distance, yet still improve testing turnaround times. Where necessary, Essential Service Laboratories can be used to stabilise samples locally before sending them for testing.
