What we do

We provide pathology services to all hospital and health services across metro, regional, rural and remote Queensland.

Pathology is a vital part of modern medicine and helps determine the cause and nature of diseases through examining and testing body tissues and fluids. Pathology results are involved with 70% of all medical decisions and all cancer diagnoses.

We do pathology tests 24 hours a day in 36 laboratories across Queensland. One of our laboratories employs over 500 staff in Herston, Brisbane so pathology services are in big demand.
