Not surprised at poll result


21 November 2007

Labtests Auckland is not surprised at the results of the Diagnostic Medlab commissioned Colmar Brunton poll. The poll does not reliably present Labtests new and innovative laboratory service that will be provided to the people of the Auckland region. This poll tends to perpetuate the misinformation that has characterized Diagnostic Medlab’s response since Labtests was awarded the new contract to provide community laboratory services for an 8 year period commencing July 2007.

Labtests Auckland will maintain or improve turn around times for routine blood tests

Labtests are putting in place a specimen collection service that will meet the access issues of our population particularly the special needs of the high needs groups.

We are investigating innovative and reliable ways of transporting specimens to our laboratory. Commercial couriers have significant expertise in this area and have successfully transported laboratory specimens throughout New Zealand for many years.

Labtests is on target to being the provider of community laboratory tests from July next year.
