We are fortunate enough to have an ‘Australian Clinical Labs’ collection centre adjacent to Next Practice. They are our preferred pathology that offer a wide range of pathology investigations. Most tests can be performed on a walk in basis, but it is worth checking with your doctor or the collection centre in regards to your need.
In order to have pathology tests performed, your doctor needs to provide a referral form. The doctor will request tests that they think are necessary in your care; a Medicare rebate is only possible on investigations suggested and managed by an AHPRA recognised doctor for the improvement of a person’s health. If you have questions surrounding this, please speak with your doctor or a patient advocate for more information.
