Canterbury SCL puts patients first. As part of our commitment to the Canterbury region we have over twelve collection centres in addition to working with GP practices for the collection of samples.
As part of the Canterbury District Health Board (CDHB) contract, we provide a range of pathology services for all GPs, public hospital clinics and Midwives for diagnostic testing for eligible patients. Canterbury Southern Community Laboratories will also provide commercial services for non funded requests.
Our pathologists are available to provide all clinicians with expert advice and interpretation to assist in the patient’s ongoing management and care.
In addition to laboratory testing, we provide extended services at the request of health practitioners.
