All Samples that go to Liverpool Royal go to the Duncan Building this can be accessed in two ways
Method 1: Continue Past the Main Entrance as described previously and at the first set of traffic lights turn Left onto Daulby Street, Entrance is on the left. If the Barrier is down, Most Motorbikes including the BMW’s will fit thru the gap to the side, follow the road round to the left and you will see a selection of Motorbikes and Cycles parked up on the right. Park here, Sign above the door says Duncan Building
Go thru the revolving door turn left and follow the corridor around to the right until you reach the lifts. Go to the second floor turn Right out of the lift press the buzzer and be prepared to wait if no one is manning reception. Once thru the doors follow the corridor to the end and turn right follow this corridor until you reach the overhead sign “blood samples”. Door is on the Left samples go into a tray and if required someone at the workstation to the side of it will sign for receipt of goods.
Virology Samples go to the 5th Floor in Exactly the same place. All other samples go to reception which is directly opposite the blood samples room.
