Changes with Royal Mail mean that ALL pathology postal packs are now made up with Tracked 24 returns. This provides a particularly suitable method of transport for any healthcare organisation. Postal pathology with Tracked 24 returns provides:

  • Simple and convenient sample handling throughout the UK for most tests. It is not suitable for microbiology or coagulation samples
  • Scope for large and small numbers of samples
  • Next morning delivery
  • Allows patients and practices to track samples through the Royal Mail system
  • Samples can be posted from any Royal Mail post box, including COVID-19 antibodies
  • Designated Priority boxes for COVID-19 PCR (swab) kits.
  • From 1st January there will be a charge of £2.26 for each Royal Mail Tracked 24 pack. This charge will be itemised in monthly invoices to the practice or patient, as requested.
