Acute Biochemistry Services

The acute biochemistry section offers a comprehensive repertoire of biochemistry investigations, provided by modern, automated analysers.

We provide an analytical and clinical advisory service for primary and secondary care in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan, as well as welcoming requests from external providers. Services are provided at the University Hospital of Wales and University Hospital Llandough sites.

Information for Patients

These laboratory services cannot be accessed directly by patients - a referral from a GP or specialist doctor is required (depending upon the condition involved). If you have any questions about the services available and how these can be accessed by you or your family, please contact your GP to discuss.

They should also have information about the funding of these tests within your area as this varies both within and outside of the UK.
