Clinpath Collections Service Update

Thursday, 27 August 2020 | Brooke Kenny

Pulteneystreet Think Pathology. Think Clinpath

We are here to support you and your patients.

As we navigate our way through COVID-19, we continue to add to our services. 

Some of the changes include:

Increased mobile services

Our domiciliary service prior to COVID was prioritised for mobility impaired patients however this service is now available and accessible to all patients. This service requires a booking through Client Services on (08) 8366 2000 or 1800 5870 778

Waiting Rooms

Due to the social distancing requirements and the current space restrictions many of our waiting rooms have had to minimise the number of chairs available for patients. At some sites we are introducing “buzzer” systems which replace the need for the patient to take a number and enable patients to wait in their cars, not within medical centres.

Respiratory Collections

We appreciate the way in which we have collected respiratory specimens needs to change. We therefore will now manage all respiratory collections through our dedicated COVID-19 drive through locations or through our mobile service, eliminating the need for any respiratory patients to enter your clinic.

New Collection Centres

As we continue to expand our collection centre footprint we are pleased to inform you of our newly opened centres.
