Partners in patient care
We provide services in communities, hospitals and critical care settings. The information we hold enables greater continuity of care and strong partnerships with clinicians so patients get the care they need when and where they need it.
Our pathologists (many of whom are dual trained as physicians) work in hospital laboratories and are part of a patient’s treatment team. Their timely interpretation and advice are critical to quality care.
Our forensic pathologists and grief counsellors provide the answers and care families need when faced with the unexpected or unexplained death of a loved one.
- We have expanded access to time-critical pathology tests by rolling out the world’s largest integrated point of care testing program. We’ve installed and networked 400 hand-held devices to nearly 175 regional and rural emergency departments across NSW, with more to come. We also provide staff training, technical support, ongoing monitoring and special software that transmits results into a patient’s electronic medical record.
- We support families seeking fertility treatment, monitor women with problems in early pregnancy, screen for conditions such as Down Syndrome and preserve fertility specimens for cancer patients.
- Our experts are part of multi-disciplinary team meetings with clinicians and other specialists – a best-practice model for ensuring high quality patient care.
- We provide specialised paediatric pathology services to the Sydney Children’s Hospital.
- We’ve partnered with clinicians to develop a free app that gives doctors and their patients access to information about haematology trials across NSW.
- We provide testing that helps diagnose chronic myeloid leukaemia, monitors treatment and recurrence, and detects resistance to therapies.
- Our labs provide comprehensive diagnostics, genetic screening, HIV outreach clinics and a host of other essential pathology services.
- We perform post-mortems for unexplained or unexpected deaths and offer specialist grief counselling to help families cope with the loss of a loved one.
