COVID-19 testing

We are no longer booking appointments for COVID-19 testing. If you have a request form, please take it to your nearest testing location – don’t wait for us to call you to book an appointment. Please be patient, the collection centres are dealing with significant numbers of patients seeking tests.

If your doctor has sent the request form to SA Pathology, please attend your nominated testing location and your form will be waiting there for you.

No referral or booking required, but GP referral preferred.

 

Result notification

We will send your results to you via a text message or call you on your nominated phone number – you don’t need to register for this service. Please make sure your mobile or home phone number is included on your pathology form.

If the result is positive you will be contacted directly.

Our call centre is now open:
