South East London Pathology Services:

Will there be a provision for a post-vasectomy postal semen testing service?

Published: 23rd July 2021

Due to the short timeframe necessary to guarantee the integrity of samples, there will not be a provision for a post-vasectomy postal semen testing service for GPs. Viapath provides a UKAS-accredited andrology service that requires post-vasectomy semen specimens to be hand-delivered to the andrology laboratory located at Guy’s and St Thomas’ within one hour of production, to facilitate an adequate report. Therefore patients requiring this service will need to arrange an appointment to produce a sample on-site.
