Therapeutic drug monitoring

Important Communication regarding COVID-19

As you are aware, the current outbreak of a novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has resulted in national and international changes to the delivery of services and processes.

The Therapeutic Drug Monitoring Unit in Epilepsy Society currently remains open to receive your anti-epileptic drug test referrals, however, there is a required change to turnaround times as a result of reduced capacity in the laboratory operations.

The turnaround time for your referrals will be set at one week [5 working days] from the receipt of the sample with immediate effect and until further notice.

Thank you for your cooperation at this very challenging time and we will contact you in due course when we have a further update.

Yours sincerely,
Dr Karin Kipper
Head of Therapeutic Drug Monitoring Unit
Epilepsy Society
