We suggest you check with your pathology provider about expected wait times.
Still waiting for results
If you have been tested in a public Queensland Health facility, have not received a call or SMS notification and would like to follow up your negative test result, you can call Pathology Queensland on 1800 472 847.
Wait at least 48 hours after your test was collected. This service is available from
- Monday to Friday, 8.00am to 5.30pm
- Saturday, Sunday and public holidays, 8.00am to 1.00pm.
Hours may be extended during busier periods.
If you've had testing performed at Mater Pathology, QML, Sullivan & Nicolaides Pathology, MedLab or 4Cyte Pathology, you can get your results from your referring GP or directly from the private pathology provider.
