Pathology lab services

We’ve teamed up with Clinipath Pathology to provide on-site pathology services at Plantagenet Medical.

Convenient on-site pathology lab services

Clinipath Pathology offers a comprehensive suite of on-site pathology lab services, ensuring you receive timely and accurate diagnostic testing without having to leave the comfort of Plantagenet Medical. Open from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM, Monday to Friday, Clinipath’s skilled staff specialise in collecting blood samples and other necessary specimens with the utmost professionalism and care. You can collect your results at our medical centre or have them sent directly to your Plantagenet Medical GP in preparation for your next consultation. If you find it difficult to get into our centre, you may be eligible for a home visit to have your pathology test. For information about home visits, or any of the pathology lab services specifically, please call Clinipath directly on 9378 6752.
