Laboratory services at the QEII Hospital will be adjusted as of Monday. The change will shorten weekday opening times by one hour. They will be open Monday to Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
AHS says their stats show few people were accessing lab services between 6:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. This will allow them to reallocate staff to busier times of the day. The lab hours had been extended in 2014 to meet demand at the time.
Weekend hours will stay the same. They will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Saturdays and 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Sundays.
