Background information

Public health care laboratories test and analyse blood, urine and cell samples among other things. A referral from a doctor or a nurse is needed to use public health care laboratory services. The referral specifies what the sample should be tested for. Before giving a sample, you should read the instructions provided by your doctor or the laboratory. For example, there may be restrictions on eating and drinking before you give a sample.

Some private laboratory services may be used without a referral if you are yourself able to specify what laboratory tests you need. Private laboratories charge the fees indicated on their price lists for their services.
