Standard pathology results are usually available 3 days after having the test.
If your result is outside the normal range, but not urgent, you will receive a text message or notification via Hotdoc. If we do not have a mobile number on file, you will be sent a letter or will be called by reception. You will need to make an appointment with your doctor to obtain the results.
If your routine test result is within the normal range, you will not be contacted. Pathology reports will be available to access via your My Health Record 7 days after upload. You will be able to see the report in your record but won’t be open the report during this 7-day period. My health records is accessed via your myGOV log in and please note that not all pathology or radiology are actively uploading their results yet.
All patients are encouraged to make a review appointment to follow up and discuss your test results with your usual doctor. Patients are encouraged to take personal responsibility for their health, thus it is your responsibility to obtain your results.
Please ensure that you keep your contact details up to date with Jindalee Care Medical Practice.
