Patients with COVID-like symptoms needing a blood test
Melbourne Pathology recognises that not all patients with respiratory symptoms or fever have COVID-19 and understand routine medical care of these patients is necessary and appropriate. Not all collection centres are suitable for patients with symptoms to attend.
Patients with COVID-like symptoms where the referring clinician is investigating something other than COVID, should attend one of our collection centres listed below for their blood test/pathology collection.
Patients with symptoms needing a COVID test, should attend one of our dedicated COVID-19 collection sites.
Note for clinicians: All referrals for symptomatic patients needing a blood test or pathology collection other than a COVID test, should clearly state what is being investigated in the clinical notes.
