dc.descriptionThe National Clinical Programme for Pathology was requested to prioritise development of guidance for communication of critical laboratory results in the community. Such results most commonly arise from test requests from GPs, however issues may arise when there are unexpected critical results following out-patient attendance, Emergency Department (ED) attendance or when a result becomes available after a patient has been discharged. The aim of this document is to provide guidance on communication of critical results for patients in the community, whether these laboratory tests originated from community or hospital settings. The procedure outlined is applicable to all laboratory results. The specific concentration of analytes in Appendix 1 is only applicable to adult, non-pregnant patients.en_US
