New H&I laboratories test request forms and user guide available from 15 November

Please destroy any previous versions

30 October 2020


We are introducing a new form,  3F - Disease association / drug hypersensitivity / H&I Research. This means platelet transfusion and disease association will be on separate referral forms:

  • 3A - Platelet refractoriness / transfusion reaction
  • 3F - Disease association / drug hypersensitivity / H&I research

RCI blood group testing request is removed from forms 3B and 3C. If blood group testing is required, please refer to the RCI department with a completed 1A form.

Please withdraw and destroy all previous versions of the forms. The latest versions of the forms will be available to download from our forms page (from 15 November) or you can order them from our labs:
