We understand that people want to be actively involved in
their healthcare. Registered Medical Practitioners are best placed
to advise people on appropriate healthcare including laboratory
testing and result interpretation. They know your medical history
and so are able to work with you to determine what tests or
treatment is best suited for you.
However, you are able to visit one of our collection rooms to
self-request a range of blood tests that do not need the approval
of a registered health practitioner. You will need to pay for the
tests you request and we will need your personal details such as
name, date of birth and contact details. Results are posted to you
within New Zealand. We do not provide clinical advice or result
interpretation on self-requested tests.
