Our Laboratory

SWBH NHS Trust provides a comprehensive pathology service to City Hospital Birmingham and Sandwell Hospital in West Bromwich. We offer specialist services to most NHS Trust in the UK. Our specialist Vitamin Laboratory has worked in the area of fat soluble vitamins for around 30 years.

Vitamin D Analysis

For Vitamin D we use the latest LC-MS/MS analysers to produce high quality results. While closely aligned with LC-MS/MS serum methods results will not always compare with offering from other laboratories. In particular some NHS labs now use cheaper screening methods on their routine analysers ,and such results can vary considerably compared to LC-MS/MS analysis.

Your Results

We send the results to the email address that is on your consent form. Your results are clearly shown along with the reference intervals and your status. We also use a simple ‘traffic light’ system so that you can visually see where your results is compared to health ranges.
