How do I get a copy of my lab results?
- Taranaki Pathology Services recommends patients obtain their results from their referrer (doctor) who can explain what the results mean in a clinical context.
- To request a copy of your results directly from the laboratory, we recommend you mention this at the time of your test. If you are wanting results from past tests, please visit any Southern Community Laboratories collection centre (bring photo ID) and complete a ‘request for results’ form.
Can I request a test myself?
Yes you can. To check which tests are available as a self-referral and their costs, please visit mytests.sclabs.co.nz. If you are wanting a test that is not on this list, you will need a referral from a NZ medical practitioner.
How can I request extra testing for my patient?
Please phone the laboratory to add on tests: 06 755 2760

What do I do if I’ve received results in error?
If you have received results in error, please email the details (or a copy of the results) to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: Please ensure the results are from Taranaki Pathology services as we are often sent miss-directed results from other laboratories
