How to request additional tests on received GP samples

The preferred way to add blood science tests to GP samples, that have already been received, is by using the ICE system. Note that an ICE user account is essential for adding tests.

To request additional tests when viewing results in ICE

  1. View the patient results via the 'View Patient Reports' icon and click on the 'ICEMail' button near the top of the screen. This opens the ICEMail window.
  2. Click on the '...' button, type in the words addtest and click on the 'Search' button. This will bring up the user 'addtest'.
  3. Click on the user 'addtest'. This will select this user as the recipient of the ICEMail.
  4. In the text field, type in the required additional test and, to aid in the speed of processing, please include relevant clinical details.

    Note that patient demographics, request information and your details do NOT need to be typed in because the information is automatically included as an attachment in the message.
  5. Click on the 'Send' button to send the message.
