Pathology

We are committed to providing quality pathology services to our patients. Working alongside Southern IML Pathology, we can accept all pathology request forms. The nurses at SMDCC can additionally collect samples from our patients, dependent on time allowable.

Pathology Tests & Results

Lab results are usually needed on the day of, or within one to two days before your infusion. Our infusion location has a blood draw area on site. Blood draw appointments are usually scheduled one-two hours before your infusion appointment time. There are additionally many Wollongong-based facilities that offer blood drawing services. Lab results drawn at these facilities will be available to your oncology doctor within 24 hours. Information on these centres can be found at: www.southernpath.com.au/locations/collection-centres.

If you would like to have your blood drawn before the day of your infusion at another facility, you may plan this with your health care team. Your doctor will need to give you a referral for the tests needed and the clinic staff will need to know the name and telephone number of the lab you choose.
