Lab Results

Sometimes your doctor needs to take a sample of blood or urine either to discover what is wrong with you or to measure something in your blood so that the right medication is given to you. These tests could be anything from blood sugar to a full blood count or a sample of tissue to test for cancer.

While urine can generally be tested in the surgery, blood and other specimens are usually sent away for testing at a laboratory. Most results come back within 48 hours unless a very rare test is needed which has to go to a specialist lab further away when it might take a little longer.

Samples of blood for blood tests and certain other laboratory tests can be collected by the nurses at the Ostend Medical Centre although the principal collection site is at the Labtest offices under the Harcourts Building in Oneroa. Labtest is open from 7.00am till 2.00pm or by appointment after that.

An appointment at Labtest is not necessary to have samples taken between 7.00am and 2.00pm.

The results of your test will be available on the patient portal:

https://www.connectmed.co.nz/practice/ostend-medical-centre

All abnormal tests will be phoned through to  patients although occasionally the doctor will need to see the patient to discuss the results. Normal results are not routinely phoned to patients. We encourage you to check your own results through the patient portal as above. If you are having any issues with access please phone through to the practice on 09 372 5005.
