The domiciliary service is provided by Clinpath Pathology to patients who are not physically able to attend a collection centre.
This service is generally a priority service providing patients with access to a specialist mobile phlebotomist. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are accepting requests for home visits where patients are self-isolating for their own health because they are a high risk, ie. over 70, pregnant, immunosuppressed, etc.
Mobile collections can be booked by the patient or carer, or by the doctor or clinic staff. Call (08) 8366 2000 or use the online booking service.
Domiciliary Service for Age Care Providers
Clinpath Pathology Appoints Aged Care Liaison
As Aged and Home Care providers continue to seek innovative models of care focused around the patient, Clinpath Pathology services allow people with different care packages and needs, to access a primary health care service, in a space where they feel comfortable and which is easily accessible to them. Wherever that may be.
At the heart of everything we do in our business is the patient. So, just imagine being able to incorporate and tailor our pathology services into your own health care packages... When Pathology meets Aged Care, at Clinpath you get to meet Stephanie Hubbard, our newly appointed Aged Care Liaison.
