Self Requested Testing

Self Requested Testing

Medlab South recommend that all laboratory testing is ordered via the patient’s healthcare provider, however we recognise there are some instances where patients may need to order their own laboratory tests. In these instances patients are able to order from a limited test range.

Patients must be aged 16 or over to self request a test.

For any medical advice regarding these tests, please consult your healthcare provider. 

Making a Request

Click here to order a test electronically or download the Patient Self Request Form and take it to a Medlab South Collection Centre.


We will email your results to you if an email address is provided on the Self Requested Test request form.  Results sent by email are password protected – we will provide a copy of the completed request form with a request barcode number.  Use the barcode number to open the file emailed to you.

Medlab South takes no responsibility for the security of emailed results.

We can mail your results to your nominated address if no email address is provided (allow approximately 7 working days after the completion of testing) or you can arrange collection of your results from a Medlab South collection centre.  Photo ID is required. 

Please note that your healthcare provider will not receive a copy of your results.

Patients will need to consult their healthcare provider for all interpretive advice about results.


Payment can be made online, or in person at the collection centre prior to the testing.
