Description

Sometimes when you visit your GP, specialist, midwife or other healthcare professional, they will want you to have some tests. These tests may be needed to check that the doctor’s diagnosis of your problem is correct or to check that you don’t have certain serious conditions.
 
The types of specimens taken include blood samples, urine or faeces samples and skin scrapings or swabs from, for example, your throat or ear. 
 
Laboratory Services are located:
  • at Middlemore Hospital on the ground floor in the north end of the Galbraith block
  • at the Manukau SuperClinic™ Blood Test Centre (Module 2).
