WEQAS Interactive Site Availability 29th -31st August 2014
Our hosting services are relocating to new premises, and this will involve a shutdown of our server. The move is scheduled to run from mid day Friday 29th August through to 8 am Monday 1st September. Although our service providers will endeavour to keep down time to a minimum, WEQAS interactive services will be unavailable for an extended period through this move window. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Scheme Extension Notice: This move may well impact on our data processing, therefore we have decided to extend the Return Date for the Blood Gases/Cooximetry Scheme, please see below. We would like to inform you there may be a delay in the availability of Mainline reports and POCT Creatinine reports.
