Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory UK, Axiom Veterinary Laboratories, The Quality Clinical Pathology Service
Welcome to Axiom Veterinary Laboratories Ltd
It is our intention to keep Axiom Veterinary Laboratories Open in support of the Veterinary Profession unless government policies dictate otherwise.
How do we plan to maintain our service to you?
We have our own dedicated courier team who are determined to be there to collect your samples and deliver them to the lab each day. Within this we have contingency drivers in place to cover any runs should anyone have to self-isolate.
We are where practicable keeping our different service departments staff separate from each other to reduce the risk of cross infection.
We are running shifts at the lab to comply with the governments advice on distancing. This allows us to separate our staff within departments for as little chance of contact as possible. This will mean we extend our working day and you could see results coming out late in the evening.
Like you, working it the medical profession, we practice good hygiene techniques and have the facilities here for contactless hand washing etc.
We are working closely with our supply chains and have a good stock of consumables and reagents.
We are monitoring and liaising with the other referral labs that we subcontract to and will make alternative arrangements where necessary and possible. We have already found some of our suppliers have had to close their service and we have been able to make other arrangements so far.
Where practical we have allowed some of our staff to work from home. We have a high speed dedicated internet line into the lab with alternative back up lines in support. This combined with our in house IT team allow us to scale up and down our IT systems to facilitate this.
We are here to support you in meeting the emergency needs of your patients during this difficult period.
