Changes to Lab Appointment Times - March 2021
Dear Patients and Care providers,
The Cancer Centre will be changing the timing of some lab appointments. This change is to improve your experience by decreasing the amount of time you are waiting inside the Cancer Centre.
Starting April 12th lab work that is required for your IV treatment will now be booked the day before your scheduled treatment instead of on the same day.
If you have your blood drawn in the lab you will be given an appointment between 10 am and 2 pm. If you have blood drawn in the chemo suite from your central line (ex. PICC) your appointment will be scheduled between 8am -10am or from 1 pm to 2 pm.
You will receive a call at home from an RN before 6 pm to review your blood work results.
If you are coming to see your doctor in-person you will continue to have your lab appointment on the same day that you see your doctor.
