Pathlab Bay of Plenty provides diagnostic laboratory services to the Bay of Plenty region. If you visit your doctor, and laboratory tests are requested to help diagnose your illness, the majority of these tests are free of charge, and will remain so. However, some requests may not meet the criteria of diagnostic testing, and you may be asked to pay for this service.
Criteria for free tests:
You must be a resident of New Zealand to be eligible for free laboratory testing. All request forms must have a valid National Health Number unique to you written on the form. Your doctor has a record of this number. Only tests to help diagnose or monitor a disease are free. Your doctor must write why these tests are required on the form. All testing that is required for employment medicals, pre-travel checks, wellness screening, annual check-ups and visa requests will be charged to the patient.
Mon - Fri 8:00am - 4:00pm
