Getting tests done
Only registered medical practitioners, midwives, nurses and certain other kinds of health professionals are entitled to order laboratory tests. Patients must have a signed test request form. For most tests, patients can have their blood taken at a community laboratory collection room (Labtests). Certain specialised tests may require a visit to one of the LabPlus collection rooms.
