Children & pathology

Small children may need extra support in preparing for their pathology tests.

Children between five and 12 years can have their collection performed at any of our centres, however, it is best to call the collection centre you plan to attend ahead of time and make an appointment to ensure a stress-free experience. 

Collection centres for ages 5 and above

Our littlest patients 

We provide specialised collection for the under-fives performed by collectors who have been trained in advanced paediatric care.

Collection centres for ages 0-4 years


The Brave Bunch - Who are they?

When taking your child for a pathology test, it is a good idea to explain why the test is necessary, and what is involved.

That is why we have introduced The Brave Bunch and our kid's page. These resources will assist you in providing information and what your child might encounter when going for testing.

The kid's pages include educational videos, resources, and activities tailored towards our youngest visitors.

The library

The library is where you can locate videos and documents to help you prepare and explain what will be experienced when you and your child visit us for a pathology test.
