Telehealth Pathology Requests

To improve availability and to ensure continued access to healthcare services, Capital Pathology has introduced a number of ways for clinicians to generate pathology request forms for their telehealth patients.

Request forms received electronically will be entered into our system and an SMS will be sent to the patient to advise that we have received their request form. Patients simply need to turn up at their preferred collection centre and show this SMS to their collector.

For further information or assistance with these telehealth options, please contact Client Services on 6285 9805.

Fax or email a standard request form

You can generate a pathology request form from your medical software and fax this through to the patient's collection centre of choice, or centrally to our Doctors Services Centre. Alternatively, these forms can be scanned and emailed to dsc@capitalpath.com.au

Use interactive PDF

This interactive PDF request can be filled out on any PC with Adobe Reader installed. The form can be saved locally and then emailed to the patient, or to our Doctors Services Centre at dsc@capitalpath.com.au.

Please note that the form must be downloaded to your computer prior to use. It will not work correctly within a web browser PDF viewer.

Import an RTF letter template

For clinics using Medical Director or Best Practice, a Rich Text Format (RTF) template can be imported into the letter writer of the medical software. A completed template can then be emailed to the patient, or to our Doctors Services Centre at dsc@capitalpath.com.au.
