Blood testing (phlebotomy) is available Monday to Friday mornings with our specially trained phlebotomists. Our nurses also provide this service but all tests must be ordered by a doctor.
Bloods are sent to Southern Community Laboratories for analysis. Most testing done by the laboratory is free to New Zealand residents, but charges apply for non- New Zealanders and for some specialised tests.
When test results are returned they are reviewed by a doctor and then made available to you either on ConnectMed, or by text or phone. With the exception of some specialised tests, most lab results are available within a few days.
