Pathology Collection Centres have been established in Western Sydney to help perform tests for patients who are suspected of having COVID-19. 

If Referring to a Collection Centre

Demand at local collection centres is currently high. 

Before you refer your patient to a collection centre, you should:

  • Provide your patient with details for several collection centre locations, in case of high demand at the preferred location.
  • Supply your patient with a surgical mask advising them to wear it.
  • Advise your patient to contact the collection centre to make an appointment before they attend. 

Practices remain responsible for informing their patients about their test results. 

Until the result is received it is a requirement for the tested patient to self-isolate.

Auburn Pathology Collection Centre

This centre has the capability to receive a GP request for testing for COVID-19 (post assessment) via a ‘drive-in/drive-out’ method in their cars.

It is strongly recommended that if you have assessed a patient and found that they meet the NSW Health COVID-19 testing recommendations you encourage them to make an appointment to visit this centre instead of an Emergency Department or a COVID-19/Flu Clinic

Currently, only patients who have been assessed by a GP and have a completed pathology request form can attend this centre.

Please note that this service is available by appointment only.
