Tumour marker tests being sent to Sheffield?

I was wondering if any one has had their tumour marker tests sent to Sheffield ? I live in Southampton and I was told that these tests had to be sent there. It seems very strange to me !

hi Rachy, as far as i am aware my TM’s are done at my local hospital (midlands) bt they do take longer to come through than other blood results so who knows??..i will try and remember to find ot at my next appointment. x

Sometimes they only do certain tests in batches eg once per week hence the delay. I was told this when my mums receptor status was late back.Maybe only certain hospitals do them too?

Hi I have tumour markers done they used to do them at Southend hospital.then changed to somewhere in London.probably cheaper.xxsharon
