Blood Collection/Lab Services

During Alert Level 2, routine laboratory collection services resume in and all previous collection restrictions are lifted. 
Walk-in services continue to be suspended and individuals are asked to book an appointment, as outlined below.
For laboratory services, clinicians should continue to issue lab test requisitions based on the importance of results on care decisions and minimize the frequency of repeat tests so that more patients can be accommodated.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic, outpatient blood collection is by appointment only across the region. 
Prior to proceeding to a blood collection clinic, please ensure that you have completed the pre-screening for COVID-19 online at and to only go to a blood collection appointment if the result of your online assessment indicates that you do not need to be tested for COVID-19.
