Request blood testing online

Pathology for diagnosis, screening or monitoring

Pathology tests can help your doctor understand, diagnose, and treat a health issue you are experiencing. Regular testing is also useful for monitoring chronic conditions to ensure effective management, or to confirm that medications are working effectively. Pathology tests are also used for health screening, helping to detect diseases early and allowing for timely intervention. Schedule a video consult with a doctor to discuss suitable checks.

Pathology for understanding your health

You can request blood testing for a wide range of reasons

You can request blood tests for various reasons, including assessing your overall health at different stages of your life. Tests can help to identify things like deficiencies in essential vitamins and minerals, hormonal imbalances that might be impacting thyroid function and reproductive health, as well as the detection of allergies. Talk to your Doctor about any specific tests or and assessments that are appropriate for your age, gender, and individual health needs.
