Outpatient pathology

Outpatient pathology is located on level 2.

The Outpatient Pathology Clinic provides:

  • blood collection
  • blood taking from a central venous access device
  • central venous access device dressing and cap change
  • cannulation
  • ECG
  • port access/flush
  • specimen collection i.e. urine, swabs


If you require pathology, your specialist will organise a referral for you.


We now take bookings for central line dressings for PICC, Hickman and Permacath dressings. Please call (03) 8559 8110 to make an appointment.

All other testing is a walk up service. Please come to our reception desk, hand in your collection request and a staff member will call your name when it is your turn.

What to bring

If you are coming to the outpatient pathology to have a test, your doctor will either organise for a pathology slip to be sent to outpatient pathology or will give you a pathology slip to take with you.

If you doctor has given you a pathology slip, please bring this with you when you come to outpatient pathology so the pathology nurses know what type and how much of each specimen they need to collect, and the pathologists which know which analysis your doctor requires.


Peter Mac’s Outpatient Pathology is a bulk billing service.
