Preparing for your blood test.

A Guide for Patients

If you are new to pathology testing then the information in this guide is for you. We hope it answers some of the more commonly asked questions we hear from patients new to using pathology testing services.

1. Practitioner Request Form

You will need a Practitioner Request Form from your health care practitioner. Your practitioner will select your test/s and sign this form. Note: This form must be returned with your completed Collection Kit.

2. Sample Collection

Take your completed request form to your nearest Australian Clinical Labs Collection Centre and request a sample to be collected. Click here for a full list of Australian Clinical Labs Collection Centre locations around Australia.

3. Make an appointment to visit your doctor

The test may take a week to be analysed and to be sent back to your doctor, make an appointment to see your doctor to receive your results.
