We do kindly ask that all face-to-face consults with a patient, to please give them their test request form to bring with them rather than emailing it to us, as was happening with virtual consults. While we are very pleased to advise that we are commencing roll-out of connectivity in our collection facilities; until this is live across all sites,paper copies of forms are the most efficient method for both patient and Pathlab phlebotomy staff to manage.
Please advise patients that we are experiencing extremely high numbers presenting for testing due to the backlog as we comeout of COVID-19. We are most grateful for everyone’s patience and understanding in this regard.
