After-hours Urgent Testing

An urgent on-call after hours testing service is offered by VIDRL 24/7 to inform clinical management of public health decisions. The ability to perform urgent out of hours testing will be determined by the on-call pathologist depending on circumstances and out of hours availability of suitably qualified staff.

If urgent out of hours testing is required and approved by the on-call pathologist, the specimen is to be deposited in the specimen delivery box located on the Grattan Street side of the Doherty Institute (LINK to specimen deliveries)

Please ensure a telephone number (mobile or landline guaranteed to be manned) is included with specimen paperwork to ensure results can be communicated urgently to those who need them.
