Requesting Pathology

Start requesting pathology with PathWest

Are you setting up a new medical practice or newly joining one? PathWest works with a range of health professionals, both in the community and within our hospital network to deliver health care to patients.

You can get started with requesting pathology with us in three simple steps:

  1. Have your Medicare Provider Number, your contact details and a list of practitioners who will want to receive reports
  2. Decide how you would like to receive reports. Consider if PathWest Direct (our electronic report delivery system) will work for you
  3. Complete a New Client Request Form or speak with our Client Liaison Team by calling 13 PATH (7284) or emailing us.

Looking for a pathology partner in your new practice?

As well as providing 76 licensed collection points across Western Australia, PathWest also works with medical practices to conveniently locate collection services nearby or within your practice.

If you would like to partner with us, please get in touch or book an appointment with our Client Liaison Team by calling 13 PATH (7284) or emailing us.
