No there is nothing that is signed.
But the police should mark the sample as yours
Was this for a drink driving matter?
I am sorry to hear about this.
Where was the blood test taken?
They should have given you details of the test and that it was taken.
The hospital has the records and they follow the appropriate process.
You should be given a copy of the results with the charges.
If you are not happy and you are questioning them you have a right through the court to issue a subpoena of the records.
Do you have a solicitor?
You should not do this yourself. If this is a first of this type of offence the Solicitor can get the court to be lenient by providing additional information.
In a driving matter I assume.
Well this will then be treated as a second offence because the other was 5 years ago.
So the penalty will be harsher.
Here is a link that can show you the penalties based on the actual charge
Because you hit someone and I assume the facts will say that, it is a serious offence.
