There are a number of different lung function tests available so it is important that you see your general practitioner or specialist for a referral prior to making a booking. A booking cannot be made without a referral.
Lung function testing is only performed on certain days of the week and some more specialised testing is performed only when we have a doctor on site.
From mid-June 2017 we will also have lung function testing and consulting available on the North Shore.
The referral process for either lab will be as follows:
- If your doctor has given you a referral you can email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or fax (09 6386022) the referral through to us.
- On receipt of a referral, a receptionist will call you to make an appointment.
- The receptionist will outline the costs and time required for the test.
- A confirmation will be sent to you.
