Receiving Results

Doctors and patients rely on Laverty Pathology to deliver timely and accurate results. Our Results Department is responsible for disseminating critical patient information, ensuring this is performed in a prompt and professional manner that maintains patient privacy.

Results are delivered to referring practitioners once testing is completed. As a patient, it is best that you attend a consultation with your doctor to discuss your test results as even “normal” test results may require further medical investigation.

My Health Record

We are connected to the My Health Record system, operated by the Australian Government. For tests that are bulk-billed we will send a copy of your pathology test results to your My Health Record unless you specify on the form for us not to send a copy. You will be able to view these results seven days after we have completed the tests.

You can manage access controls within the My Health Record system for any results we upload. If you never wish to receive any results from us in your My Health Record, or you need to change consent for upload for a recent visit, you can also call us via the Contact Us information.

We are unable to upload results issued prior to April 2021. 

For more information about the My Health Record system, go to http://myhealthrecord.gov.au or call the 24/7 helpline on 1800 723 471.

Requesting a copy of results

If required or you are unable to receive results via the My Health Record system, you can request a copy of your pathology results by attending any one of our collection centres and completing a Request for Medical Records form. You’ll need to provide two (2) forms of identification, one of which needs to have a photo of you (e.g. driver’s licence or passport). Your request will be actioned in the laboratory and your results will be posted to you.
